Amir Dossal Connects WEF and UN with Global Healthcare as a Unifying Priority

In Diplomat, Health, Publisher Channel by Mary Kurek

Amir Dossal is the Pres. and CEO of the Global Partnerships Forum who was recently appointed as a Distinguished Fellow with the World Economic Forum (WEF) with a focus on global healthcare. Along with serving as a Commissioner for the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development co-established by ITU and UNESCO, he serves as Co-Founder and Executive Vice Chair for Blockchain for Sustainable Development.

It is easy to see, that Dossal approaches his 25 years of work with the United Nations (UN) leading in finance and management as a broader vision of diplomatic mission. He has become a sort of bridge between the UN and WEF in critical healthcare that would naturally require these particular two giant NGOs to work together toward solutions.

Amir Dossal shares his experience and thoughts on current and future issues in this conversation with Frontrunners Innovate Producer and Host, Mary Kurek, and Co-Host, Dave DeMarco of Material Health Strategies.
