What is the World Health Innovation Summit and Why is It So Successful?

Established in 2015 the World Health Innovation Summit is now engaged in over 20 countries. Its two Cumbrian Summits had 40 million social media imprints worldwide. Tested and now being adopted in cities across the UK— Carlisle, Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Newcastle, Cornwall, and Fylde – WHIS is now actively engaged with growing in-country networks in India, Thailand, the Philippines, Greece, Brazil, Kenya, Ghana, Sweden, Japan, and New Zealand. WHIS won the Carlisle Living Award Innovation Award and Special Recognition Award at the Zenith Global Healthcare Awards in 2016.

WHIS builds financially self-sustaining infrastructures focused on the health, vitality, and wellness of local communities around the world. Designed and carried out by local innovators and entrepreneurs, WHIS’ communities address local needs and honor local innovators and entrepreneurs, while leveraging WHIS’ experience, financial and other resources, and global networks.

The linchpin of the WHIS model is generosity and strategic trust. In practical terms WHIS’s successes to date can be attributed to the effective implementation of several social innovations.

Building Local Community Value. The WHIS process is a fusion of local and global, in-person and online, collaboration. It identifies, highlights, and engages innovators and entrepreneurs involved in community health, vitality and wellbeing to come together in a Summit that showcases, and for the first time encourages creative synergies among them in an active dialogue with the entire community. WHIS connects these resources to its global network and markets, and introduces the most relevant products and services to the local community. This process produces a surplus that is then paid forward to the local community in terms of financial support and the creation of new well-paying jobs (“innovators for health”). Local communities around the world are supported by the WHIS’ expanding global network.
