M42 announces role as Principal Health Partner at COP28

by Madaline Dunn

M42 is set to have a presence at COP28 as the summit’s Principal Health Partner. M42 will promote dialogue at the intersection of healthcare, technology and sustainability at the global summit.

COP28 (November 30 to December 12) will include a dedicated health day (December 3) for the first time in recognition of the impact climate change has on global health.

The inaugural Health Day and climate-health ministerial is set to be co-hosted by the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with multiple nations.

The COP28 Presidency has also pledged to introduce an official, high-level health initiative, emphasising establishing robust and inclusive healthcare systems that can withstand the challenges posed by climate change.

In line with this, M42’s efforts at COP28 aim to spearhead transformation towards tackling urgent climate challenges while advancing the frontiers of healthcare, it shared.

M42’s COP28 initiative is led by a dedicated taskforce and supported by M42’s Executive Leadership team, with industry experts and partners.

As the Principal Health Partner, M42 will have a prominent presence in the Blue Zone, where it can host strategic meetings and negotiations to further partnerships with like-minded organisations from across the world.

It will also have a stand within the UAE-led Green Zone, specifically within the Innovation and Technology Hub’s Healthcare Cluster.

Hasan Jasem Al Nowais, Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer of M42, said: “In the year that COP28 is hosted by the UAE, M42 – as a global health-tech company with a presence in 27 countries – has a key responsibility in furthering the sustainability vision of the UAE’s wise leadership. M42’s role as the summit’s Principal Health Partner enables us to shape and influence dialogue at the critical intersection of healthcare, technology and climate change.

“We are excited to join visionary changemakers from around the world at this pivotal moment to impactfully disrupt the global healthcare landscape and increase awareness of the industry’s potential for positive environmental and societal impact.”
