Session Abstract – PMWC 2020 Silicon Valley


The vast majority of available genomic data is from participants that are of white, European ancestry, therefore representing a fraction of the world’s population only. Continued disproportionate advances in genome sciences will exacerbate global healthcare disparities in several ways. This session will address how coordinated, multi-sector solutions could address and preempt such disparities to ensure the promise of precision medicines is realized globally.
