BIAC to Hold Forum on Innovation in Health and Well-Being

heart_cardio_resized_ssActive and healthy populations are the backbone of our economies. OECD countries are striving to develop more sustainable healthcare systems that harness innovation to achieve better health outcomes, greater productivity, and well-being. To show what the private sector is doing to address these obstacles, the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD will hold a Forum on Innovation in Health and Well-Being on May 3-4, 2016 in Paris at the OECD Headquarters.

This two day event will feature interactive panel discussions on innovative on-the-ground projects and explore trailblazing solutions from BIAC’s global membership. In 2017, Health Ministers from OECD countries will meet to discuss the next generation of health reforms and provide future orientations for OECD work. Against this backdrop, the event will allow participants to exchange solutions and policy recommendations with high-level representatives from the business community, governments, and leading voices in the field. The discussions will also explore how healthy populations can be a strong pillar for increased economic productivity and societal well-being. Registration details and an agenda will be soon released.
