The BFA Global Health Forum will serve as a world-class thought-leadership platform that will integrate global political will as well as innovations in technology, finance, and business models in the health industry. It will gather world attention and have a global influence. No matter who you are - government, international organizations, enterprises, non-profit organizations, experts, scholars or common individuals, you can participate in GHF through various forms. By pooling wisdom and efforts, we will work towards a common goal hand-in-hand to respond to challenges faced in health and social development with sustainable solutions.

a) Gather political will and reach a global consensus

GHF is the first world-class international health conference held after Astana's Global Conference on Primary Health Care in 2018. It will carry forward the spirit of the Declaration of Astana. It will support the UN, governments and the international community in gathering political will. It will encourage concerted and active participation of government officials, scholars, businesspeople, and the public. It will seek integration of public policies with business and technology innovations to forward "health for all" and promote the realization of UN's Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda.

"The next person who can surpass me must be in the health industry.”

  — Jack Ma

b) Gather result-oriented solutions at a practical level

GHF not only promotes debate, research and discussion at the policy level but more importantly seeks the integration of ideas with application and cooperation among government officials, scholars, businesspeople and the public. It aims to bring together knowledge and practice for real-world applications and leverage its platform to gather insight, resources and attention, so as to achieve balanced, mutually-beneficial, and sustainable development in the health industry. The Forum will also create more opportunities, encourage more cross-border players to engage in innovation, push deeper integration of health, technology and financial sectors, ignite new engines to drive growth, and constantly enhance health for the whole society.

c) Bring attention and influence for long-term development

With the long-term influence of BFA and scientific, professional and focused publicity campaigns, GHF aspires to become a major thought-leadership platform in the international health community that can not only enhance China's influence on issues related to "health for all" and amplify attention and support for China's health care reform both domestically and abroad, but also help boost host city Qingdao's international presence, promote the concentration of global resources in Shandong province, drive the urban growth and development of the regional health industry so as to spur the sustainable development of the local economy with Qingdao at the center.
