Financing SDG 3 (Health): The Case of Hepatitis C Elimination

Wednesday 1 December

Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi), FIND, the global alliance for diagnostics and the World Economic Forum will organize a panel discussion at the Building Bridges Week 2021 "Financing SDG 3 (Health): The Case of Hepatitis C Elimination".

Date: 1 December 2021

Time: 16:30 to 18:00 CET

Introduction

The technologies to eliminate many diseases are now available. However, the financing is not. Hepatitis C kills nearly as many as malaria, and yet not one major funder is funding the multi-billion dollar funding gap. This event will showcase countries which have used innovative finance approaches and South-South collaborations to progress towards hepatitis elimination.

Speakers:

  • Greg S. Garrett, Director, Business Development and Partnerships - Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi)
  • Susanne Andreae, Head of Health and Healthcare Industry - World Economic Forum
  • Bill Rodriguez, CEO - FIND, the global alliance for diagnostics
  • Olufunmilayo Lesi, Viral Hepatitis Lead, Global HIV, Hepatitis and STIs Programmes - World Health Organization

Registration is only required for guests attending in-person, guests participating online can livestream without registration.
