The Future of Public Private Partnerships
Over the Next Decade
Dec. 5, 2016 Geneva, Switzerland

You are invited to be a discussant at an invite-only roundtable of private and public sector leaders entitled "The Future of Public Private Partnerships over the Next Decade". The roundtable, hosted by UNAIDS, Sarona Asset Management and GHD, will focus on developing innovative, public-private collaboration to catalyze economic growth and improve wellbeing in emerging markets. With donor budgets shrinking, and the dwindling of resources in emerging markets to address public health challenges, there is a critical need to engage the private sector in future global health solutions. The private sector creates jobs and contributes its resources and best practices to the intractable problems facing the world's most vulnerable populations—making it a valuable partner in creating sustainable global health solutions in underserved markets.

This session will bring together a small group of global leaders to explore innovative models for part­nerships between the public and private sectors – leveraging a full set of tools and partnerships that will be instrumental in achieving the ambitious targets set out in the post-2015 global development agenda.

Other discussion leaders include:

  • Michel Sidibé, Undersecretary General of the UN and Executive Director of UNAIDS
  • Gerhard Pries, CEO & Managing Partner, Sarona Asset Management
  • Mukesh Chawla, Head of Knowledge and Management in the Human Development Network, World Bank
  • International banks and business leaders
  • Representatives from the World Health Organization (WHO) and USAID
  • Other leaders from G7 governments and emerging markets.

The discussion will commence in the afternoon on December 5th and will be followed by a small-reception.

Please let us know if you are able to join us. Further details on the forum will be sent in the coming week.
