Global Sustainable Health Summit Features TeachAids Methodology
The Sustainable Health Summit, held at CoWrks in February 2020, was a day-long conference with a multidisciplinary audience comprising startups, investors, healthcare professionals, enterprises, government, academia, and policymakers. The conference featured masterclasses, panel discussions, case studies, startup pitches and keynotes from leaders in India’s healthcare ecosystem.
There were pertinent discussions on entrepreneurship and technology adoption to the need ecosystem partnerships and healthcare investment, demonstrating the scope for systemic transformation. To lead a masterclass session, TeachAids trustee, Nruthya Madappa, presented a case study of TeachAids’ learning from the field as applied to the global context. Her talk was focused on the intricacies of deploying large-scale public health interventions. TeachAids has demonstrated that public health interventions are not one-size-fits-all and need a transnational approach. In order to achieve lasting success, each targeted effort requires a deep understanding of the nuances within the local landscape. In order to scale, TeachAids has had to pay extreme close attention to the details. This path-breaking approach has resulted in a ripple effect of impact that continues to multiply. TeachAids was proud to be featured as part of this illustrious forum where many ideas and perspectives were shared across leading public health institutions globally.
The event drew leadership across eminent healthcare and technology professionals from Apollo Hospitals and Microsoft to emerging visionaries from companies such as Cytecare, RxDx, Metamagics, Onward Assist and many more. With developments in the areas of water & sanitation, non-communicable diseases, and infectious diseases to urban health and the environment, startups had the opportunity to present a wide range of specialized solutions.
Over the past month, we’ve been inspired by the response from the conference. Participants are exploring meaningful ways to build on our foundation as a way to scale for other health needs. We believe meaningful collaboration is key to achieving far-reaching impact. The Summit championed this core belief and instilled great hope amongst all of us.
