Reverse Innovation: An opportunity for world health
After six bilateral forums, the Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine (FAM) invites you to attend FAMxParis, its first international forum, on May 31st and June 1st, 2018 at UNESCO, devoted to the exciting theme of reverse innovation for health.
This original subject refers to those innovations coming from Brazil, Russia, India, China, the BRIC and emerging countries, that have the potential to address three major issues facing developed health systems:
- regions with too few physicians,
- excessive healthcare costs
- the need to rethink the role of health professionals
With 40+ speakers from around the world and the support of the Foundation’s six key partner countries -- Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Russia, Senegal-- FAMx Paris, for which entrance is free of charge, will be the occasion for the Foundation to contribute to its basic mission of facilitating access to care for the greatest number. REGISTRATION IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL.
