First of all The Win-Win initiative is a notion. It is a hand in hand cooperation.  It belongs to all of you.
As you know, when President J.F. Kennedy declared that the arrival of the first  human being to the moon  will be before the end of the Sixties , it was seen very difficult and far objective, full of obstacles and challenges.
It was not just the money or the work that made it happened.. But it was the focused scientific and practical work concentrated on arriving to the endpoint.
In our session of Harvard Global Health Catalyst Summit, 28 April, 2019, in Harvard GHC Summit @Harvard Medical School,  we are NOT going to repeat  long introductions,  or  data about the tragic situations or detailed information about the increased  gap between the required and the available clinical oncology-radiotherapy cancer care  , and prevention. The tragic situation is Known by all!.  Also, we’ll not spend time to repeat decelerations and call for actions. There is enough!. Millions of cancer patients and their families in the world are in need to actual, touchable, accessible and affordable cancer services and not just talks or publications or conferences.  
As it is impossible to say all in a few minutes presentation, then we’ll be so focused in  our talks in the session, Moreover , in the side 2 meetings of 29 April, 2017  -as you see below- your contribution is mandatory to make more practical progress.
Thank you all.
Going forward, hand in hand . 
Friday 28 April, 2017. 4.00 pm-6.15.00 pm
