The event was co-facilitated by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Tuberculosis Innovations and Health Systems Strengthening (TBIHSS) project to promote inclusion and health equity for underserved populations in the Philippines. Participants received free chest X-rays, which were interpreted using artificial intelligence (AI). AI interpretation of chest X-rays can lead to fast, accurate diagnoses of tuberculosis (TB).

Global leaders, health experts, and policymakers from around the world come together each year at the Prince Mahidol Award Conference (PMAC). This year, FHI 360 will contribute its unique insights to the theme of “Geopolitics, human security and health equity in an era of polycrises.”

 

Participants will explore how geopolitics since World War II have affected global health and discuss how we can address these influences as we strive to create a more equitable world in the face of multiple crises.

 

FHI 360 has been involved in planning and supporting the PMAC International Organizing Committee (IOC) since PMAC 2020. This year, FHI 360 will lead, moderate, present and coordinate main conference sessions, side events, and poster sessions.
