The ministers will each deliver a speech highlighting the festival’s theme and ambitions.

Following the opening words, Dr. Päivi Sillanaukee, Special Envoy, Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, Finland will moderate a thought-provoking discussion. The discussion will center around the theme "Welcoming Act: Why Deploying Prevention and Precision at Scale?"—a critical inquiry into the future of healthcare, emphasizing prevention and precision medicine. The discussion features experts including the Head of the Novartis Foundation Dr. Ann Aerts, Chief Translational Science Officer at Phenome Health Dr. Jennifer Lovejoy, CEO Gareth Prech from World Health Innovation Summit, and Prof. Kazuhiro Sakurada from RIKEN and Keio University.

The Radical Health Festival Helsinki is a beacon for health innovation, drawing together experts, policymakers, and enthusiasts from across Europe and beyond. The festival is a collective endeavor, supported by over 20 European contributors. Key partners such as the City of Helsinki, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), Nightingale Health, and a myriad of influential organisations like the College of Health Information Management Executives (CHIME), The International Associations of National Health Institutes (IANPHI), and The European eHealth Multidisciplinary Stakeholder Platform EHTEL, have pledged continued collaboration for this year’s event.

This year, the festival also features an exclusive full-day program of site visits and high-level conversations for international ministerial delegations and selected participants, hosted by the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. The curated program by the ministry provides an excellent view of Finland’s leading digital health landscape and offers a unique opportunity to find inspiration and forge potential partnerships.

In its previous iteration, the Radical health Festival Helsinki attracted more than 1,000 participants, featuring over 150 speakers and 100 companies and organizations. This assembly of minds and institutions underscores the festival's pivotal role in fostering innovation and dialogue within the global health sector.
