Forum 2012: Beyond Aid… Research and Innovation as key drivers for Health, Equity and Development, 24 – 26 April 2012, Cape Town, South Africa.
What was Forum 2012 about?
Forum 2012 was held from 24-26 April 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa. Forum 2012, aimed to move beyond the traditional discussions of health – which generally focus on unequal allocation of resources and attracting more donor aid to solve the health problems of low and middle-income countries (LMICs). The event brought together over 400 change makers from across the world and got them to start think about improving health research capacity and stimulating innovation for enterprise development to help resolve the health problems of LMICs. This will hopefully create a more productive, equitable development growth path than purely relying on aid.
What happened during Forum 2012?
