Big Change: Sustainable healthcare for the 21st century


The challenge of providing affordable healthcare to all who need it is the focus of this major international event being hosted by The George Institute for Global Health and the Entrepreneurship Centre at the University of Oxford.

The two day meeting, 22 - 23 November 2013, will involve a selected group of high profile politicians, academics, entrepreneurs, investors and journalists in an interactive programme of challenge and debate.

The event will have worldwide repercussions for future research and the delivery of innovation and affordable healthcare and will be delivered together with Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford, which takes place on 24 - 25 November 2013 with a focus on healthcare.

There will be four complementary streams around affordable, innovative healthcare solutions for disadvantaged people around the world. Each of the streams will involve both plenary sessions and workshops. The streams are Innovation in Health Services Delivery,  Innovation in Healthcare Technologies, Financing Healthcare Innovations and Innovations in Pharmaceuticals and biologics.
