County Innovations Challenge Fund and Villgro Kenya are excited to convene The Health Innovations Learning Lab - Theme: Building a Robust Ecosystem for Health Innovations in Kenya to Catalyse Progress Towards Universal Health Coverage on  Tuesday June 11, 2019 at Villa Rosa Kempinksi Nairobi from 6am - 8pm.
The Health Innovations Lab will bring together key stakeholders in the health innovations ecosystem to deliberate on how to leverage the transformational potential of health innovations and accelerate progress towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
Experts drawn from various fields will tackle conversations around the current state of play in the health innovation ecosystem, drivers, enablers and best practices for effective scaling of innovations in the Kenyan health sector, how to design health innovations with a vision of scale  and provide insights from case studies of scaled innovations.
There will be deep dives into other topics like  what financing instruments and business models work for innovations at various stages in the pathway from ideation to scalable impact and the role of challenges funds – what are they for, what makes them work, what are the pitfalls to avoid. Pathways for scaling and sustaining health innovations is another topic on the table for discussion.
Participants will have a chance to network with other key players in the ecosystem making the Health Innovations Learning Lab a platform to create synergies between stakeholders.
