GSK CEO and GAVI Alliance CEO Discuss “The Other Six Billon” Live at Fortune Brainstorm Health Conference

Innovations in medicine and medical technology are designed to serve the 600 million people living in the most developed countries, and that’s who they typically benefit. But what about the other 6 billion?

On Wednesday, November 2nd, Andrew Witty, GSK CEO, will join Seth Berkley, GAVI Alliance CEO, at Fortune Brainstorm Health for a discussion on “The Other Six Billion” referring to the areas of the world that are traditionally not served by innovations in medicine and medical technology. Outside of the most developed countries infectious diseases—including malaria, tuberculosis and HIV—still kill an astounding 15 million people a year. Even health issues more commonly associated with the West, such as obesity, type-2 diabetes and heart disease, are rising fast in developing nations—faster than their health systems can handle them. How do we bring healthcare disruption to the places that need it most?

A frank discussion on the new planet-focused approach to medical care will take place at the Fortune Brainstorm Health Conference at 12:00 PST/3:00 EST – follow along live here: http://fortune.com/2016/10/25/brainstorm-health-livestream/
