Her Highness Sheikha Moza’s vision for WISH includes a deep-rooted commitment to support promising and talented young people from around the world. The Young Innovators program at WISH addresses this head on. We aim to identify, attract and assist talented and ambitious people from 18-30 years old, all of whom will be provided with a range of unique opportunities at the pre-eminent event on the health calendar. This helps fulfill Qatar Foundation’s pledge to support youth development nationally, regionally and internationally, and provides WISH itself with diverse and fresh voices. WISH is a community first and foremost, and providing global solutions that save lives and resources is at the core of our vision.
Eight individuals from around the world, with established innovations that have reached the market, will be chosen to showcase their innovations at WISH 2018 in Doha from the 13-14 November. This will give them a platform to present their ideas in front of the world's most prominent thought leaders, Ministers of Health, academics and policy makers. Last year over 1,700 international delegates attended the summit and as a Young Innovator you will be at the center of this global event, presenting in the gallery area with your very own uniquely designed space.
