World leaders and policy makers gathered in Doha to discuss innovative solutions to the most pressing global health challenges at the inaugural World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH).

Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Mozabint Nasser, chairperson of Qatar foundation for education, science and community development, WISH brought together close to 1000 global health innovators and policy makers including heads of state, ministers, senior government officials, academics and influential business leaders from 67 countries.

There will also be a special panel on health and ethics.
Innovations will be on display in state of the art innovation 'pods' alongside the individuals who turned these novel ideas into practical solutions.

Delegates at the Summit will hear from distinguished keynote speakers including Simon Stevens, president of Global Health Division, United Health Group; Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, chairperson of Myanmar's National League for Democracy; Boris Johnson, Mayor of London; and John Dineen, president and CEO of GE Healthcare.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said, "There are many health issues that are of global significance, but every country around the world also faces its own set of challenges. Bringing together key international leaders is a great opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from excellent and innovative work elsewhere."
