World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) has announced that Al Jazeera Media Network (AJMN) will be its official international broadcast media partner for the WISH 2016 Summit, taking place on November 29 and 30.
The partnership recognises the alignment of the two organisations’ shared goals, which highlight and raise awareness of the impact of healthcare and innovation within Qatar, the Arab region and the world.
WISH has become a meeting point for thousands of high-level policymakers, academics, and professionals. It has also evolved into a key platform for the dissemination of healthcare innovation and best practices.
WISH, an initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), and AJMN are working together to promote and highlight the critical role that research and policy discussion can have on improving global health systems.
As part of the partnership, Al Jazeera will promote the impact of WISH’s work through a broadcast and online media campaign. The conference will be broadcast live on Al Jazeera Mubasher and will also be available for viewing on the WISH website (wish.org.qa).
Al Jazeera anchor, Sami Zeidan, will moderate a panel discussion on Genomics in the Gulf Region and Islamic Ethics, to take place on November 29; journalist Tarek Bazley will moderate two panel discussions, one on Autism to take place on November 29, and another on Cardiovascular Disease to take place on November 30.
