Davos 2017

Responsive and Responsible Leadership

In 2017, nearly 3,000 leaders from business, government, international organizations, academia, and civil society gathered at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting to address how to meet the leadership challenges wrought by five key global developments: the Fourth Industrial Revolution, brought about by advances in technology; the need to move beyond nation states to a dynamic, inclusive, multi-stakeholder global governance system; slowed economic growth; mistrust of market capitalism; and a loss of confidence in traditional institutions  fed by fears for the future and the search for beliefs that can provide common purpose and continuity.

Vulnerable Populations and the Great Health Divide

7:00 am Oliver Wyman Health and Life Sciences Breakfast

Vulnerable Populations and the Great Health Divide

A discussion of a critical issue in global healthcare: the disadvantages that vulnerable populations face in accessing health information. In an age when information equals empowerment, too often our most vulnerable citizens - the elderly, poor, and those with mental health challenges - lack access to crucial health information. But whilst the challenge is often recognized, our research shows that little is being done about it. And so the health gap grows.
