FT Latin America Healthcare & Life Sciences Summit

FT Latin America Healthcare & Life Sciences Summit






The FT Latin America Healthcare and Life Sciences Summit, now in its second successful year, will provide a timely opportunity to examine and discuss the major trends shaping the public and private healthcare and life sciences industries of the region, as well as the emerging opportunities and challenges for investors.

It has been a year of both opportunity and challenge for the Latin America’s life science and healthcare industry. Currency depreciation and a slowing economy have constrained the ability of governments in the region to meet critical healthcare challenges. The Zika outbreak, meanwhile, has drawn attention to the enduring spectre of infectious diseases and the inadequacies of existing healthcare infrastructure, just as a growing epidemic of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) threatens to overwhelm. Yet opportunities for investors in the region abound. Despite the current downturn, total healthcare expenditure is expected to grow significantly in the years ahead; international efforts will be needed to develop and finance vaccines, diagnostics and treatments for infection diseases; the scope for the private sector and for public–private partnerships can be expected to increase as cash-strapped governments try to fill critical infrastructure gaps, and products, service and solutions geared toward and the needs of region’s expanding elderly and chronically ill population –from new drugs, to home care and digital solutions- are a growing niche.


The FT Latin America Healthcare and Life Sciences Summit will be attended by: CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, Chief Medical Officers, Chief Strategy Officers, Heads of R&D, Emerging Markets or Latin America, Global Public Health, Consumer Health, Government Relations, Pricing, Regulation, Market Access and other senior-level executives in the following sectors:

  • Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Generic and Specialty Pharmaceutical companies
  • Medical Devices and Diagnostics
  • Investments (Fund Managers, Venture Capitalists, Private Equity firms, Investment Bankers, IP Groups)
  • Healthcare Provider and Payers
  • Clinical Research Organizations
  • Healthcare IT and Digital Health (Patient records, data, mobile and telehealth applications, social media)
  • Regulation


  • Assess the implications of the current economic downturn for investment and innovation in healthcare in the region
  • Share perspectives with fellow investors on why Latin America is still the right place to invest, and the next big opportunities
  • Discover how Latin America’s healthcare companies are successfully transitioning from local to regional to innovative global players, and the implications for competitive landscape of the industry
  • Hear from the region’s digital health pioneers how digital disruption is taking hold, enabling innovative new business models to address the enduring challenges of costs, access and affordability
  • Keep abreast of the new communicable and emerging NCD disease trends in the region and the lessons for addressing global public health challenges
  • Meet and greet the local players and government decision makers who are transforming the healthcare markets of the region
