Investing in Transformative Public-Private Partnerships at a Global Scale

Meredith Baker July 11, 2022

Cutting checks just doesn’t cut it anymore. When Gavi launched COVAX in 2020, they knew that fighting the pandemic would require more than money – it would require technology, expertise, advocacy, and innovative funding at a global scale. 

Building on lessons learned from the pandemic, this session will explore how we can reimagine global cooperation and response and make sure that more unique assets of the private sector can be fully unlocked to boost the economic recovery, steer routine immunisation back on track, and mitigate the risk of future health crises. Gavi and Twilio will discuss working together to create sustainable ecosystems for change, not just flash-in-the-pan solutions, soliciting insights from the audience along the way.
