The main focus of the summits are on the rising scourge of non-communicable diseases like cancer, mental health, pain and cardiovascular diseases which are severely impacting global health and economic development.
Since 2015, the yearly summits have led to many win-win collaborations including the launch of two major collaboration initiatives: the comprehensive cancer center in the cloud (C4) powered by artificial intelligence and the Global Phytomedicines collaboration initiatives.
