The main focus of the summits are on cancer and non-communicable diseases, advancing, catalyzing collaborations for global health and economic development.
Since 2015, the yearly summits have led to many win-win collaborations including the launch of major collaboration initiatives including: the comprehensive cancer center in the cloud (C4) powered by artificial intelligence and the International Phytomedicines Institute, and the Global Oncology University (GO-U). The summits a unique for their unprecedented engagement and participation of the diaspora, policy makers, industry, and outreach to minorities not often engaged in global health. Following initial funding support from Harvard institutions, the GHC summits are now funded by the USA National Institutes of Health and have extended to many institutions in the USA, Europe, and accross the world
