AS/COA Healthcare Series


AS/COA’s Healthcare Series addresses key challenges and growing opportunities in healthcare across Latin America. The healthcare agenda covers a diverse range of topics including pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, medical devices, healthy living and wellness, technology, financing, and insurance. The aim of the Series is to promote public-private cooperation, increase awareness of medical technologies and innovation, encourage regulatory harmonization and collaboration, and share best practices in health financing. 

The series has focused on sustainable healthcare systems, the importance of innovation and e-health in providing equitable and efficient care, and the need to focus mental health, screening, and NCDs. 

The series provides a platform for COA corporate members to engage with key stakeholders on best practices in meeting the growing demand for access to quality healthcare, and creating innovative solutions that promote inclusion, competitiveness, and regional economic development. The Healthcare Series is co-chaired by Hugo Villegas of Medtronic and Felicia Knaul of the University of Miami.
