The Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED), in partnership with the Philippine Department of Health and Department of Science and Technology, will host the Global Forum on Research and Innovation for Health in Manila, from 24-27 August 2015.

As world leaders shift their focus to the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals, increased understanding of the impact of research and innovation on health is of critical importance. Scientific research and innovation has transformative effects on not only health outcomes, but also national economic growth and sustainable development.

Forum 2015 will bring together all stakeholders who play a role in making research and innovation benefit health, equity and development. Over the course of three days, Forum 2015 will use informative and interactive discussions, workshops, networking sessions and activities to allow participants to interact, inspire, and learn from one another.

Forum 2015 provides a platform where low and middle income countries take prime position in defining the global health research agenda, in presenting solutions and in creating effective partnerships for action.
