What is future united?

A new, long-term GBCHealth initiative.  The aim of future united is to draw together businesses, NGOs, governments, entrepreneurs & investors to work together to future-proof the world against global health challenges that are coming at us all, fast.

What was the launch?

As well as launching future united, we held the inaugural future united awards announcing 5 winners, and 5 special commendations, across five categories: the collaborator award, the futurist award, the lodestar award, the multiplier award & the provocateur award. 

What will future united do?

future united begins with three programs:

1 // a 12 month series of events tackling critical future health threats, including an off-grid summit in Scandinavia for the world's top philanthropists & CEOs

2 // an academy for health entrepreneurs, launching initially in Africa, then Central America & Asia, offering our network qualified funding & investment opportunities, strategic partnerships & acquisition targets 

3 // a roadmap to defeat anti-microbial resistance worldwide & end malaria in Africa, directly impacting global workforces of anchor partners 

Why now?

Health inequity is now a systemic risk. The business case for investing in global health is incontrovertible. Just as in 2001 when we led a coordinated response to HIV / AIDS, now is the time to create the same, global, change.

Our overall objective is to unite, organize & equip a coalition of businesses to come together to help protect their ecosystems – employees, their families & communities, supply chain & customers - from current & future pandemics.

Our focus is health equity and how to address new global health threats such as AMR, climate change, food insecurity, water shortages and future pandemics.

How can I / my organization get involved?

At a top level, we're welcoming a select group of anchor partners from the private sector who are looking to invest in global health and the security of their workforce, supply chains & ecosystems.  Anchor partners receive priority access to our intelligence, contacts, reports & programs.

Other opportunities include event sponsorship, and also partnerships on collaborative projects & programs where we welcome intellectual, technical and financial support.
