2024 Discussion Series on AI and Global Health Convening #1

Registration has closed. Read key takeaways.

Join us for the first convening of the Bay Area Global Health Alliance’s 2024 Discussion Series on AI and Global Health, which aims to explore how organizations are leveraging the transformative power of AI to increase their global health impact.

On February 28, we will explore how members PATH, Pendulum, and Viamo overcame challenges and leveraged AI’s transformative power to increase their global health impact. William Weeks, Microsoft’s Director of AI and Health, will also join for a stage-setting conversation with Natasha Sunderji, Accenture ADP’s Global Health Lead and Alliance board member. Learn more.

The series will feature experts, practitioners, and stakeholders from diverse sectors to discuss applications of AI in areas such as healthcare delivery, disease surveillance, diagnostics, and treatment. With a focus on education, knowledge sharing, and networking, these interactive virtual sessions are designed to: 

  • Increase our community’s knowledge and awareness of how AI is being integrated into global health programming, 
  • Surface opportunities and challenges with the use of AI in low-resources settings, emphasizing critical success factors, and 
  • Build a vibrant community for learning, dialogue and networking.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the dialogue and explore how AI can be harnessed to drive better outcomes for the communities we serve. 


Background: Following the Alliance’s panel on AI during its 2023 Annual Meeting, and the Alliance’s participation in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Roundtable on AI and Global Health, members requested further convenings to understand opportunities and implications for their work. This series hopes to tackle that – showcasing members who have started integrating AI into their organizations and programs and exploring how best to ensure the responsible and ethical implementation of AI in their initiatives. It hopes to provide paths forwards for those new to AI and those who are well-versed in the emerging technologies.
