IHW SUMMIT 2015 - SESSIONS

Good Food, Good Water & Good Air: Better Health

Health and wellbeing is an outcome of what one eats, drinks and breathes in. We know today that a poorly nourished pregnant woman is almost certain to give birth to a smaller child with challenges to its physical and cognitive development. Conversely, poorly managed food and beverage consumption along with unhealthy lifestyles, will result in disorders of metabolism and ill health. India struggles with both ends of this spectrum of ill health, to which high quality, timely nutrition is the solution.
 
Ensuring that high quality nutrition is available and accessible to every Indian, particularly its mothers and children, along with clean water and air, is a challenge that involves a wide gamut of stakeholders, from the farmer & the industries to policy makers in the government, and all points in between.
 
The session focuses on ensuring good food, good water and good air for all so that we can achieve better health at both end; those suffering from chronic deficiency of nutrition and those falling prey to bad food, lifestyle and pollution.

Better Supply Chain for Better Health

Manufacturing in the healthcare sector requires greater synergy with the government, regulators and other key stakeholders to establish compliant business practices that are commercially viable.
 
Healthcare supply chain is facing increasing pressure. Pharmaceutical and medical device production is getting more complex as companies expand their portfolios in order to align to rapidly changing markets.
 
Economic growth globally is creating new demand for affordable and effective healthcare products which in turn also creating great risk in quality and compliance issues and creating further risk in the supply chain.
 
This panel will discuss how the result would be a demand driven and supply ready set of healthcare solutions that would be a critical yet well performing component of the country's vision of universal healthcare and continue India's contribution to global health by providing stable sources of essential products and services.

e-Health & Wellness

This session explores the need for a Health Information Exchange that includes all elements of health administration like knowledge dissemination, healthcare delivery, health infrastructure and public health. It is visualized as a countrywide e-network that would connect stakeholders and will help better implement the Government's initiatives of the National e-Health Authority, within the ambit of a Digital India.
 
The intent is to have this Exchange create a better informed country on what constitutes wellness and its role in the health of the individual, the family and the nation.

Health & Wellness Entrepreneurship Session

Fostering and building an ecosystem where practitioners, entrepreneurs and their supporters are encouraged to take the risks is the need of the hour in India. We have the need for affordable and accessible processes and products that result in health outcomes.
 
The panel discusses affording our innovators the space - both financial and operational – to understand what
makes wellness the underwriter of health, to birth innovations; required regulatory understanding, financial underwriting and the fostering of a research and innovation mindset in our academic and clinical settings.

Special Session with State Health Ministers

Inter-ministerial Roundtable featuring Ministers of Health of States on resolving challenges to health in their respective States.
 
This session proposes to host a conversation with the Health Ministers from five States and three thought leaders from the nutrition, healthcare providers and pharma sectors. The intention is an idea exchange on issues around the factors that impede / improve health in these States and debate solutions towards a Healthy India.
