SwitchPoint is a conference about creativity, partnership, and action. It’s where humanitarian innovation, global health, and technology collide.
It focuses on unusual collaborations, spreading great ideas from around the world, and incubating yours.
Our speakers are building medical devices out of broken toys, using drones and 3D printers to save lives, creating innovation hubs, crowdsourcing crisis response, driving policy, shaping investment, and mapping everything.
Come to SwitchPoint and find your people. Networking is not a big enough word—we like to think of it as alchemy. The drive and ingenuity of the SwitchPoint community will encourage you to make your big idea a reality—no matter what.
SwitchPoint is produced each year by IntraHealth International, a global health organization that understands the power of creative people and partnerships and the fast-growing interconnectivity of global development.
