Ethics and business integrity are at the heart of patient-centered healthcare. As demonstrated by the COVID-19 pandemic, ethics and business integrity in health is also key to resilient and sustainable economic growth. As societies across the Americas continue their response to and recovery from the pandemic, leading government, industry, and civil society stakeholders will join together on 17 and 18 August 2021 for a virtual event focused on reinforcing ethics and business integrity across the Western Hemisphere’s health systems.

The Americas Health Ethics Virtual Forum, hosted live from Brasília, will showcase the advances in ethics and business integrity, transparency, and good governance that have been made since the 8th Summit of the Americas hosted by Peru in 2018. The Forum will catalyze significant progress in preparation for the 9th Summit of the Americas to be hosted by the United States in 2021 or 2022.
