The World Health Summit is one of the leading forums for global health. Research, politics, the private sector, and civil society come together to find solutions to the world’s greatest health challenges and to strengthen international cooperation. It welcomes 2500 participants joining the discussion with stakeholders from 100 countries and 1200 international organizations. To the program will participate about 300 speakers as Ministers, Nobel Laureates, CEOs and experts from all over the world set the agenda for a healthier future. The brightest minds from every sector come together at the event for a single purpose: improving health worldwide.
One of the central topics of discussion is “Transforming Human Capital: Investing in Health and Education”. The World Bank’s Human Capital Project is a global effort to invest in people for greater equity and economic growth. Health and education are centrally important objectives that should be core values of economic development. Education plays a key role in a developing country’s ability to absorb modern technology and maintain self-sustaining growth. Greater health capital may improve returns on investments in education, while greater education capital may do the same for investments in health.
