Event Description

Game Changers in Global Health: A four-part lunchtime seminar series

The last fifteen years have defined global health in profound and exciting ways. Dramatic increases in funding, the creation of new local/global entities, and the engagement of citizens and the private sector have all played a role in shaping global health as we know it today.

The Global Health Program will be hosting its first Game Changers lunchtime seminar series this spring. Our Departmental Guest, Dr. Anu Gupta will set the stage and interview guest speakers on three game changers in global health.

Session 2: "Partnerships – Pivotal or Passé?: How Public-Private Partnerships Have Fared in Global Health"

Anu Gupta, MD & Alice Lin Fabiano, MBA

Partnerships have become the mainstay in achieving global health progress.  The often cited African proverb "to go fast, go alone; to go far, go together" speaks to the critical role of working with others.  In this session , we will explore the diversity and complexity of partnerships in global health to better understand their consequences and impact.  We will be joined by Alice Lin Fabiano who will share her reflections on partnerships through a provocative Q&A. 

Alice Lin Fabiano is a Director of Worldwide Corporate Contributions at Johnson & Johnson. She is responsible for its strategic philanthropy partnerships in digital health and HIV/AIDS.

Prior to joining Johnson & Johnson, Ms. Lin Fabiano was a strategy consultant at The Bridgespan Group where she worked with leaders and organizations to accelerate social change, with a focus on women’s empowerment and education. Ms. Lin Fabiano was a Harvard Business School Fellow at Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).

She began her career at Morgan Stanley where she was part of the founding team that launched the firm’s Social Finance and Microfinance Institutions Group, and raised more than $100 million for women entrepreneurs around the globe.

Ms. Lin Fabiano holds an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and a B.A. from The Johns Hopkins University. She is a proud board member of Prakti Design, a nonprofit that designs cook stoves for the world's poor.
