WISH 2024

The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), an initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), will host its seventh edition of WISH in Doha on November 13 and 14, 2024.

Across two days, more than 3,000 health policy makers, innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers and practitioners will convene at Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) to look for innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest health challenges.

This year, WISH has partnered with the World Health Organization to develop three WHO-led collaborative research projects, generating evidence-based reports for in-depth discussion at the summit. These reports will focus on topics needing the urgent attention of the global health community, underscoring a joint commitment to improve policy and practice.

Additionally, local and international partners will work with WISH to develop reports for the summit on a range of issues in areas such as health systems, ethics, physical health, and mental health. WISH 2024 will continue to emphasize the need for regional perspectives on global health and the importance of translating research into solutions with real-world impact.
