2020 was a year of transformation, particularly to the healthcare innovation ecosystem. The pandemic has exposed several vulnerabilities in health systems but it has also brought to the forefront immense opportunities for the health tech/MedTech players and innovators. The challenges in scaling indigenous innovations are more systemic and need collaborative approaches with coming together of stakeholders from governments, industry, multilateral, hospitals, foundations, and innovation enablers.

The webinar:

  • Understood the systemic gaps in scaling up healthcare innovations and the opportunities for the funders/investors thereof
  • Understood about Pay-for-Success instruments to enable scaling up of innovative and effective service delivery models in mental health that are community-led
  • Understood how funders can explore and scale community-led models that leverage social capital and do not place a further burden on government front line workers
