Ed at TEDx
One of the speakers in the prestigious TEDxSingapore held on Saturday 11th November was Allied World Healthcare’s very own CEO Edward Booty!
Ed joined a lineup of other thought-leaders for a day of learning, collaboration and discussion about some of the most challenging issues we face today, along with innovative solutions to try and solve them. Ed’s passion centers around creating disruptive, digital health models to connect the last-mile, and truly rethinking financing approaches to ensure sustainability of healthcare services for underserved communities – not relying on grants or charity. This drove him to establish AWH less than two years ago and still fuels his drive to deliver healthcare services to all underserved communities throughout the world.
In his talk, he discussed some of the major challenges faced in healthcare today, shared stories of working in the Philippines, outlined the core Allied World Healthcare model, and shared how some of the low-cost, collaboration-driven delivery principles can be applied to developed healthcare systems (such as Singapore, and the UK).

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) continue to be the leading cause of death globally, with four out of five people with an NCD living in LMICs. However, there is limited availability of affordable diagnostics for NCDs at the primary care level in many rural populations, making it one of the weakest links in the cascade of care. New innovations are needed to reach these populations with the accessible diagnostics services they need.
