The SwitchPoint Conference is an annual gathering of diverse global thinkers merging and sharing ideas, breakthroughs, tools, and lessons to save lives in the developing world– with wide focus on innovation, technology, and global health. SwitchPoint brings together people across a number of industries and genres to talk about applying the latest inventions, innovations, entrepreneurial ideas, and principles to dramatically increase global health equity on a broad scale. One of the main goals of the gathering is to challenge participants to think across boundaries. SwitchPoint focuses on the intersection points; the unusual collaborations; simple and elegant solutions; and the unexpected repurposing potential of good ideas to solve the greatest challenges of our time.
