XCHANGEing ideas

The Global Health Innovation XCHANGE, in collaboration with its newest Innovative Organization members, has applied to the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) Sprint for Women’s Health! ARPA-H, established by President Biden in 2022, aims to address the historic underfunding of women’s health research and accelerate solutions for women’s health issues. Through upcoming funding opportunities, ARPA-H seeks innovative ideas to improve women's health outcomes, addressing underrepresentation in scientific research. This collaborative effort underscores the commitment of XCHANGE and its members to advancing women’s health research and driving impactful change in health care.

In addition, the XCHANGE recently spotlighted innovators from our Women's Health Cohort in our webinar: Women's Innovation through the XCHANGE. In this webinar, we spoke with Jeff Stevens, CEO & Founder of Physio AI, Kasia Hein-Peters, Founder & CEO of Abante Scientific and Fernando Silva, Founder & CEO of ViTIA and discussed how these organizations are supporting women's health through AI. We would like to extend a special thanks to our moderator, Ricardo Silva, Director Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and our panelists! If you were unable to attend this event, you can still join in on the conversation! Check out the full recording here.


The XCHANGE is a public-private membership platform with a mission to advance inclusive and equitable global health innovations by cultivating a dynamic, diverse community of private and public visionary organizations and innovators. Together, we collaborate to advance health solutions that meet the needs of all people. Learn more here.
