SwitchPoint 2020 Reimagined

July 22, 2020

To safeguard the health and well-being of our speakers, staff, and attendees from across the globe from COVID-19, IntraHealth International has made the difficult decision to cancel our SwitchPoint 2020 in-person conference in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, this September.

In lieu of a gathering in person this year, our team will host a series of highly creative and interactive virtual gatherings, designed to engage an influential global network and featuring many of the speakers and performers who were lined up to participate this year. SwitchPoint Exchange events have taken place in the US, Japan, Rwanda, and Ghana—and this year, they will all take place online.

The first of these events, Youth Voices: "The Future We Want," will take place in partnership with The Global Fund. Current SwitchPoint ticketholders will be invited to attend this initial 2.5-hour session, free of charge, on September 18. Click here for more information and to register.

All ticketholders are being contacted and can choose to either donate the price of their ticket to IntraHealth’s COVID-19 Frontline Health Worker Fund—which provides much-needed personal protective equipment to health workers in the countries where we work—or to receive a full refund. Refunds will be available through August 6.

And don’t forget to watch past talks, listen to our podcasts, and continue the conversation on SwitchPoint Participate, our online community.
