Thought Leadership Activities

Our activities focus on sharing insights, challenging the status quo and fostering the kind of debates and discussions that lead to better treatments, better care and healthier societies.

We invite thought leaders from around the world, including our Distinguished Fellows and researchers, to share insights on a range of topics through blogs/ commentaries, reports, videos/ podcasts, events, data visualisations, infographics and other activities.

We also regularly convene roundtables, symposia and public talks; and collaborate with key stakeholders globally and locally. Our researchers and Distinguished Fellows often participate in academic conferences, policy discussions and other fora.
