Foundation to focus on how data, digital and AI can transform global health

The Novartis Foundation strives for a transformational and sustainable impact on the health of low-income communities. In recent years, we focused on programmatic work that reached over 30 million people, plus health outcomes research, and the translation of new evidence into health policy. In 2019, the Novartis Foundation sharpened its focus to concentrate fully on exploring an emerging challenge: How can digital tech reimagine health and care systems around the world, so they change from being reactive to becoming proactive and even predictive?
