The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) is to present its evidence-based research at an exclusive global health policy briefing hosted by Health Affairs in Washington D.C. on 14th June.
Health Affairs is one of the world’s leading peer-reviewed journals in the field of health policy research. Its mission is to serve as a high-level, non-partisan platform to encourage analysis and discussion to improve health and healthcare, and to address issues including cost, quality and access.
The forum, entitled ‘Global Health: Patient Safety, Cancer Care, Universal Health Coverage and Innovation’, will explore major issues confronting the global health community, such as the effective implementation of universal health coverage and improving patient safety drawn from WISH’s portfolio of policy research in recent years.
Additionally, the event will bring together more than 150 leading international figures from academia, non-governmental organizations and the media.
Health Affairs and WISH, an initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), have built a strong partnership in delivering pertinent policy content to a vast international audience of healthcare leaders. In September 2014, Health Affairs featured ten articles written by WISH authors and contributors.
Health Affairs’ audience is broad and includes government and health industry leaders; health care advocates; scholars of health, health care and health policy; and others concerned with health and healthcare issues in the United States and worldwide.
