The goal of the Pacific Health Summit was to connect science, industry, and policy for a healthier world. The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR), the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Wellcome Trust were co-presenting organizations from the inception of the Summit through the final meeting. After eight productive years—from the inaugural 2005 meeting to the concluding Summit in 2012—global health has become an exciting new place. Our interactive format has proliferated, and decision-makers across every sector and geography are collaborating on all the critical global health issues we addressed: health technology, pandemic flu, MDR-TB, vaccines, malnutrition, maternal and newborn health, and many more. Eight years of transformational conversations and partnerships have created a unique momentum on which to build.
