Theo Papaioannou & Julius Mugwagwa present at the Bristol International Development Conference 2014


Reflecting on theoretical, policy and practice lessons emerging from various strands of health-related research projects within Innogen, IKD and the DPP Group, Theo Papaioannou and Julius Mugwagwa gave a presentation on ‘Inclusive Innovation for Development: The Case of Health in Low and Middle Income Countries’ at the Bristol International Development Conference on March 8th at the University of Bristol. The conference focused on Millennium Development Goals and was attended by undergraduate and postgraduate students, academics, development practitioners and others from agencies such as DFID, Overseas Development Institute and the World Food Programme.  In their presentation, Theo and Julius highlighted the opportunities and challenges that surround the role of scientific knowledge, technology and innovation in the pursuit of health-related MDGs, especially in getting connections between the ‘global’ and the ‘local’, how to deal with the problem of exclusivity and the need to create policy and practice space for frugal innovations.
