In focus – 45mn

In partnership with the United Nations Technology Bank.

Innovative health technologies – rapidly developed, equitably accessible, and easily diffused – can help countries sustainably reduce their health vulnerabilities and become resilient to future shocks. The WISH Summit and the UN Technology Bank for the Least Developed Countries will through this session facilitate an exchange of ideas and share experiences on systematic approaches to creating health resilience, using technology transfer for COVID -19 as a starting point. How can the world access and diffuse key health technologies for a more resilient future? What needs doing, by whom?
