    Look Back, Lean Forward

    When we last gathered in person for EMERGE Financial Health in 2019, the world looked very different. But through the immense shifts that have since occurred, the financial health movement has gained never-before-seen momentum. Now at last, EMERGE Financial Health returns in person for three immersive days to explore the solutions, policies, and partnerships that make this a watershed moment for finhealth.

    Jessica Bruder

    Join leading thinkers working in financial health today, with a special appearance by author Jessica Bruder, whose book “Nomadland” was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film starring Frances McDormand. At EMERGE Financial Health 2022, we’ll recognize the significant strides made by advocates like you and plot a course for the next steps toward financial health for all.

    FinHealth Advocates and Decision-makers Across the Financial Ecosystem

    EMERGE is the meeting ground for decision-makers across the financial ecosystem.

    Peace of Mind Policy

    The Financial Health Network is going to great lengths to ensure our first in-person event since the start of COVID-19 is as safe as possible. However, we appreciate how quickly situations can change during these difficult times. That’s why we’re introducing our Peace of Mind Policy for EMERGE Financial Health 2022, so you can register risk-free and make adjustments as needed down the road.

    Support the FinHealth Movement

    Many of our programs and research studies wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our partners, who are committed to helping those they serve. As an EMERGE sponsor, your brand can support the finhealth movement and help pave the way to better financial solutions for millions of people and families in need.

    EMERGE Financial Health 2022

    A Forum for Financial Health

    Powered by the Financial Health Network, EMERGE unites innovators across industries to learn, collaborate, and improve the future of finhealth. Explore our lineup of virtual and in-person events, podcasts, and resources to stay in the know on financial health, all year long.

    When we last gathered in person for EMERGE Financial Health in 2019, the world looked very different. But through the immense shifts that have since occurred, the financial health movement has gained never-before-seen momentum. Now at last, EMERGE Financial Health returns in person for three immersive days to explore the solutions, policies, and partnerships that make this a watershed moment for finhealth.

    From the Forum to the Future

    For more than 15 years, decision-makers from across the marketplace came together at EMERGE: Financial Health Forum to work toward a shared mission of financial health for all. When COVID forced the cancellation of our in-person forum in 2020, we asked: What if EMERGE wasn’t an annual event, but a year-round community?

    Devex @UNGA 77

    This year’s United Nations General Assembly will take place against a harrowing backdrop: Protracted conflict, a hunger crisis, climate disruption, democratic backsliding, and a world still reeling from a pandemic that revealed and exacerbated massive health disparities. Halfway between their 2015 adoption and 2030 deadline, is there any hope of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals?

    Heads of state, policymakers, business and civil society leaders, activists, and philanthropists will all converge in New York City for UNGA 77, along with the traditional flurry of side events and meetings to see how we can collectively get back on track. The Devex reporting team will be on the ground covering and driving the important conversations as the development community races to keep up momentum and recover lost ground.

    Over two days, Devex will convene those at the center of these conversations for a series of interviews and workshops that ask the tough questions and dig into opportunities for progress.

    Day One will be our Universal Health Coverage Pavilion — on the heels of the Global Fund replenishment and aimed to set the agenda for the United Nations High-Level Meeting on UHC in 2023, we’ll ask leaders what they want to see tackled in the lead up to next year to include topics such as malnutrition, health security, and health equity.

    Day Two will include a read out from the Transforming Education Summit with a spotlight on reimagining education systems amid massive learning loss, conversations on the growing hunger crisis, youth employment, inclusion, and how displacement is threatening progress on them all. We’ll hear from leaders on the role of private sector and UN financing and how the climate crisis is impacting the way they operate.

    Join Devex for the online broadcast of this series of events on the sidelines of UNGA 77 to get an inside look at the debates, opportunities, and big ideas as humanity navigates this critical juncture.

    Please note that registration for the in-person event is invite only. To request an invitation to attend this event in person in New York City, please complete the application form here.

    Strengthening Systems for Safer Childbirth Through Locally-Led Solutions

    The COVID-19 pandemic has stretched national health systems to a breaking point, hindered access to maternal health services, and worsened maternal health outcomes. The global health community must work collectively in support of locally driven, sustainable solutions to augment health system capacity, increase health system efficiency, responsiveness and resiliency, and improve maternal health outcomes.

    In September 2021, MSD for Mothers launched a new multisectoral initiative — Strengthening Systems for Safer Childbirth — aimed at accelerating progress toward Sustainable Development Goal 3.1 by investing in locally led solutions to strengthen health systems in India, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Kenya. Strengthening Systems for Safer Childbirth will be an ambitious step forward in improving maternal health through multisectoral coalitions implementing evidence-based solutions informed by local community priorities.

    Join us for an in-person event on the sidelines of UNGA 77 where Devex, in partnership with MSD for Mothers, will explore ways in which the Strengthening Systems for Safer Childbirth initiative will support local coalitions of NGOs, civil society, and social enterprises to implement solutions in their specific geographies.

    In this event we will:
    • Present for the first time the selected coalitions awarded the fellowship, as well as the community of practice lead organization.
    • Bring together global multilateral, academic, government, and private sector leaders in New York.
    • Explore locally led solutions to strengthen health systems and the need for integrating women’s voices to develop appropriate solutions to local problems.

    Save your spot to join us in person to be a part of bridging the funding gap affecting reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health services.

    Time: 10:15 a.m. ET

    Delivering Inclusive Finance

    Proven approaches to delivering inclusive finance: Key lessons from two large-scale financial inclusion initiatives

    Join us for a dynamic learning event designed to share practical lessons in developing and delivering financial services that contribute to improving the resilience of low-income customers.

    The event will draw on the work of Savings at the Frontier and Scale2Save over the past six years with 20 financial service providers (FSPs) in 9 countries across Africa.

    Sessions include:

    • Showcasing critical drivers of sustainable business models employed by participating FSPs to deliver and scale financial solutions for low-income customers.
    • Insights on leading and managing change within FSPs to serve this market segment successfully.
    • Practical tools and resources on developing value offerings for a range of low-income customers – including rural and smallholder farmers.

    This session is part of the Mastercard Foundation Savings Learning Lab project, a six-year initiative implemented by Itad. The Savings Learning Lab supports learning among the Foundation’s current savings sector portfolio programmes.

    Itad also synthesises performance monitoring data and knowledge outputs across the portfolio of projects and facilitates cross-portfolio learning dialogue.

    UNGA77: The Future of Digital Cooperation

    About The Event 

    Building on the 77th UNGA theme of “A watershed moment: transformative solutions to interlocking challenges,” this digital moment will highlight pioneering initiatives and leaders that are ushering in a new era of country-led digital cooperation to build safe, trusted, and inclusive Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI).

    Why Now?

    As the world enters the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, inclusive digital public infrastructure (DPI) has emerged as a key mechanism to transform service delivery and increase resilience for future crises. Digital public goods (DPGs) are rapidly becoming indispensable digital cooperation tools, helping countries shorten their learning and adoption curve as they build DPI. From cash transfers and food distribution to tech-led models of education and vaccine delivery, the last decade has seen a surge in the digitalization of public and private sector services. DPI systems have become critical to enabling meaningful delivery of public and private services and underpinning the achievement of a range of SDGs, including poverty reduction, financial inclusion, and climate resilience.

    As global digital cooperation accelerates and more countries build inclusive DPI, there is a significant opportunity to align investments, share technology and implementation insights, and learn from the pioneering countries championing the use of DPGs for DPI. Contributions from countries will be important inputs to the Global Digital Compact and be complemented in DPG Charter efforts.

    While DPI and other digital systems can unlock immense value, they can also expose people to risks such as privacy violations, data-driven behavioural manipulation, identity theft and fraud, and exclusion from essential public services. This event will garner commitments to put rights and inclusion at the centre of digital transformation and digital cooperation.

    Time: 1:30 PM EST
