Geeks Without Frontiers’ CEO, David Hartshorn will speak at the Forum on Day 1 on Digital Inclusion.

UN OCHA’s Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 states that 350 million people are affected by disasters each year, and as a result displacement figures could reach 140 Million people by 2050. More people than ever are affected by disaster and conflict which are lasting longer on average than ever before.  Global healthcare issues remain a prominent issue, with thousands still dying of preventable diseases and not being able to access healthcare services that they require.

AIDF has grown as a result of this global crisis and has become one of the leading global platforms serving the humanitarian aid and development sectors, bringing together regional governments, UN agencies, NGOs, Civil Society, Aid agencies and donor organisations with the private sector.

In its 11th year, the AIDF Global Summit will take place at the Ronald Reagan building in Washington D.C, also home to USAID and is located in the federal triangle.
