Asia Summit on Global Health (ASGH)

The fourth Asia Summit on Global Health on 16-17 May 2024 in Hong Kong, an event focused on health innovation and investment in Asia jointly organised by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).

In recent years, global health issues such as ageing population, novel infectious diseases and climate-related health threats have led to increased awareness and greater emphasis on concerted efforts in enhancing healthcare and the need for innovation to build a more healthy and sustainable future. In Asia, the tremendous demand for healthcare, coupled with its emerging role as an innovation hub, points to the region’s growing significance in the global health landscape.

Since its launch in 2021, the Summit has developed into a signature event for the healthcare industry in the region. The Summit in May 2023 brought together more than 90 internationally renowned speakers and 2,500 participants from 40 countries and regions. More than 300 one-on-one deal-making meetings were arranged during the Summit and discussions on potential deals are being followed up by the HKTDC team.

The third International Healthcare Week organised from 15-31 May 2024 to solidify Hong Kong’s role as an innovation and investment hub for global healthcare. As anchor events under the Week, the Asia Summit on Global Health and HKTDC Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair will be staged concurrently highlighting Hong Kong's strengths in the healthcare sector.

Themed “Innovation.Inclusion.Impact”, the 2024 Summit will bring together policy makers, healthcare experts, business leaders, start-ups and investors from around the world to exchange insights and explore opportunities for collaboration. It will comprise a high-level symposium covering a wide range of topics on global health, healthcare innovations and investment opportunities in healthcare in Asia. A series of thematic sessions focusing on the latest trends in different medical sectors, project pitching and deal-making meetings will also be organised to facilitate business discussions and investment partnerships. InnoHealth Showcase, a dedicated exhibition area for start-ups featuring global healthcare projects and technologies will be staged alongside the Summit.
