Xchanging Ideas

WGHA is proud to announce the launch of our new LinkedIn page dedicated solely to the Global Health Innovation XCHANGE! Check out our new page for announcements and info on upcoming webinars, events, and virtual gatherings focused on innovation in global health.


Additionally, we’re thrilled to share that we have two new members on the Global Health Innovation XCHANGE team: Kasia Hein-Peters and Ricardo Silva!

Kasia Hein-Peters is our new Director of Strategy and Programs. With over 30 years of experience in health care, Kasia brings expertise as both a physician and a leader in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and digital health startup companies. She believes that innovation in health care matters only if patients have equitable access to it, as a treatment won’t work if barriers prevent its prescribing, administration, or acceptance.


Ricardo Silva comes aboard as our new Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Ricardo is a globally recognized expert in clinical engineering and health information technology, fueled by a profound passion for education and innovation. With an extensive background in health care, information, innovation, technology, and business, Ricardo brings a unique breadth of knowledge and experience to the table.

Join us in extending a warm welcome to Kasia and Ricardo! Their experience, dedication, and innovative mindsets will undoubtedly propel the XCHANGE toward greater heights in global health.


The XCHANGE is a unique public-private membership platform with a mission to advance inclusive and equitable global health innovations by cultivating a dynamic and 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.
