On November 3rd, “la Caixa” Foundation, UNICEF, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will co-host an event to mark World Pneumonia Day and to celebrate the power of partnerships and innovation to prevent child deaths from pneumonia. Building on the Pneumonia Innovations Summit in 2015, the event will continue the discussion on how to accelerate uptake of health technologies critical to ending preventable child deaths, with a focus on increasing access to oxygen therapy and related products.
At the event, Laura J. Frost and Michael R. Reich, authors of Access, How do good health technologies get to poor people in poor countries?, will lend their expertise analyzing why some health technologies scale more readily than others, utilizing their analytic framework based on four A’s: Architecture, Availability, Affordability, and Adoption. The event will also feature inspiring speakers and a network of international leaders to outline the partnership architecture for action.

The deadline to RSVP for this event is Monday, Oct. 30, 2017 at 12:00 noon (EST). If you plan to attend, please make sure to RSVP before the deadline!
