WISH: World Innovation Summit for Health

The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) is a global healthcare community dedicated to capturing and disseminating the best evidence-based ideas in healthcare, providing global solutions that will save both lives and much needed resources. WISH is unique in its ability to unite stakeholders from many different countries and diverse sectors – from policymakers and healthcare providers to researchers, academics, and industry leaders. Together, we are harnessing the power of collaboration to overcome the world’s most urgent healthcare challenges and inspiring other stakeholders to take action.

At WISH, we are starting conversations and spurring change through ground-breaking discussions and content. Today, researchers and industry leaders are using WISH's evidence-based ideas to diffuse innovative best practices through their health systems, tackling the most urgent global health challenges.

Active 365 days a year, we undertake global research into healthcare challenges to provide recommendations and frameworks for governments around the world to benefit from. Through international summits we present our findings to the world’s healthcare experts aiming to inspire change and cultivate collaboration.

WISH is an initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) and is under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, its Chairperson.
