Event connection

The recently launched Lancet and Financial Times Commission report on Governing health futures 2030: Growing up in a digital world explores the convergence of digital health, artificial intelligence (AI), and other frontier technologies with universal health coverage (UHC) to support attainment of the third Sustainable Development Goal (SDG): Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages.

Following the launch of the report, the Commission will convene different youth networks focused on health, global governance, and digital technologies to disseminate the report findings to key populations. This hybrid event will bring together youth networks from Geneva, Switzerland as well as members of the GHFutures2030 global youth network. 

The Commission will present the main recommendations of the report that focus on youth as key agents of change. A roundtable discussion will include  GHFutures2030 Commissioner, the GHFutures2030 Youth Team, and the Commission’s partnering organisation, International Federation of Medical Students. Panelists will discuss the role of youth in the creation of Commission report and Youth Statement & Call for Action as well as the role youth will play in the advocacy and dissemination of the report findings to improve the impact and sustainability of such bold recommendations. 

This event is in collaboration with the IHEID Global Health Initiative, a young community of students and young professionals interested in global health governance and diplomacy, health technologies and security, and digital health.
