FOR PEOPLE AND COMPANIES REVOLUTIONISING HEALTH

Bringing together entrepreneurs, financiers, healthcare professionals, to imagine how new tools and strategies can help prevent chronic diseases related to diabetes.

The objective of INNOVATE! is twofold: to accelerate innovation by identifying new partnerships and initiatives to combat diabetes, and to encourage entrepreneurs and businesses to integrate diabetes diagnostic and care into their products and services.

INNOVATE! achieves this by reaching further than traditional medical conferences and ensuring that the topics discussed break into more mainstream conversations. By inviting a diverse range of professionals and decision-makers to address diabetes alongside medical professionals, INNOVATE! uses an original approach to tackle the multifaceted problem of diabetes and advance the Sustainable Development Goals set for the health sector.

Diabetes Africa curates topics and speakers to build a programme that resonates with a wide range of actors in the health, healthcare and development sectors and encourages connections between medical professionals and people working in the finance, policy and health services industries.
