There is immense potential in providing better quality of care and health access in low-resource settings through technological and social innovations. Michele Barry, Director of Global Health Programs in Medicine at Stanford leads a distinguished group of global health professionals who have created innovative programs to benefit their respective countries’ health services. Their work in the clinical and community level have given much headway to the eradication of infectious disease, the reduction of maternal mortality and the overall strengthening of health systems. Access to health care is the focus of this panel discussion, from the 2011 Global Health Series organized by the Stanford Global Health Center in partnership with the Stanford Graduate School of Business. By fostering and promoting innovation, and applying these solutions more broadly, we can find ways of bridging the health access gap.
