Business and Society Annual Forum on Health


31 January 2020

ChangeNOW Summit, Grand Palais, Paris



A healthy population is an engine for economic development and social progress, yet half the world still lacks access to basic health care services. The UN Sustainable Development Goals address this need through SDG3: Good Health and Well-being, which aims to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”. Meeting the targets associated with this goal is important for improving global health. Moreover, innovative healthcare solutions are compelling business opportunities.

INSEAD is convening a Business and Society Forum on Health to explore the potential for evidence-based solutions to improve the wellbeing of societies. Our Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society and Healthcare Management Initiative are partnering with AXA, a world leader in health insurance, to bring together a multidisciplinary group of faculty and practitioners to address a range of topics in health. The Forum discussions will cover nutrition, public health, healthcare delivery, access to medicine, innovation and more.

There are two options to register. Both passes give you discounted access to ChangeNOW's full set of conferences and events:

• One day pass 90€
• Three day pass 180€
(VAT included)

Passes are nominative, non exchangeable and non refundable.
