SwitchPoint Exchange: Health Data, activism, art, communication and unusual collaborations

Organised by: IntraHealth International/Switchpoint


SwitchPoint is a movement built around an annual gathering of the smart, the curious, and the creative from all circles of humanitarian and global development work. It’s the place where humanitarian innovation, global health, and technology collide. SwitchPoint is produced by IntraHealth International, a global health nonprofit that understands the power of unexpected partnerships to transform global health and development.

During this interactive session attendees will hear from artists, activists, and global health professionals who are expanding the definition of health and the players who can help make UHC a reality. Drawing from the format of the annual SwitchPoint conference, attendees will first hear from a dynamic group of presenters before breaking out into smaller groups, each with a different focus, and the session with conclude as a unified group participating in an activity that showcases the importance of art, advocacy, and innovation in finding solutions to diverse health challenges.
