About Us

Catalyzing high impact win-win collaborations for global health and development

Our Vision

Global Health Catalyst summits are all about catalyzing win-win collaborations to eliminate health disparities and advance development in the USA and globally

We have a dream that one day cancer will be eradicated,  and that people of all socio-economic, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds will have access to quality health care.

Fists in Solidarity

Our Approach

To realize this dream, we have adopted a transformative approach rooted in the values of creative agency and collaborative work embodied in the word UBUNTU. Popularized worldwide by Nobel Prize winners Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela, ubuntu signifies the idea that “I am because we are,” or human connectedness. This ethos rings particularly true in today’s hyperconnected world, where we all share in the bounty of the expanding internet, advanced information and communication technologies (ICTs) with artificial intelligence and where local health has become global health and vice versa. Activities to realize this dream can be classified into 4 areas: Education, Research, Care and Outreach with unique focus on leveraging:

  • advanced information and communication technologies and Artificial Intelligence

  • unprecedented diaspora engagement to turn brain drain to global health gain,

  • support for highly innovative high quality low cost approaches and technologies for eliminating global health disparities.

  • partnerships with governments, global health leaders, celebrity advocates, academia, healthcare industry and NGOs
