The Opening Plenary will set the scene for this year’s conference, focusing on the 2019 main theme. We will explore the controversial concept of disruption and what it means to prominent health actors above and beyond the area of technological innovation, as well as hear from a range of trailblazers championing new and transformative ideas for health and well-being. We also want to learn from our participants what disruption means to them and how it has led to transformative change in their areas of work. Together, we will explore the potential of disruption to overcome health problems, as well as consider the challenges that it precipitates and the constraints that prevent us from acting in a transformative way.
