achieving the SDG  on health, innovation & partnerships



Wednesday, October 30 2019, Paris

About this event

The Business at OECD Forum on Health will bring together senior representatives from governments, the OECD, and business to discuss the role of industry in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to health and partnerships.


In a series of panel discussions, this Forum will focus on measuring progress and the results that can be achieved through multi-stakeholder initiatives.  We will consider how different groups can work together to bring the best health outcomes for patients and better choices for consumers. Interventions will point to the critical role that innovation and strategic collaboration among stakeholders play in achieving tangible results in this field.  Participants will also identify areas where the OECD can play a leading role in helping measure progress and track best practices towards the SDGs.
