Background

The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture, Stem for Life, a Cura Foundation, and the Vatican’s Science and Faith Foundation (STOQ) host international conferences to bring together the world’s thought leaders across all disciplines to engage in powerful conversations about health, humanity and the future of medicine. We seek to encourage actionable initiatives to improve human health. Media moderators guide conference discussions making the conversations relevant and clear to a broad audience.

These global events unite scientific and health care professionals and organizations, as well as business leaders, policymakers, government officials, entertainers, athletes, philanthropists and religious luminaries from multiple denominations to engage in powerful conversations about the latest scientific breakthroughs and hope for the future. The Cura-Vatican events are a platform for patients and their families, as well as faith leaders and philanthropists to promote a global grassroots movement to conquer disease and reduce human suffering. By bringing people together to stimulate an open dialogue and encourage collaboration, we catalyze interdisciplinary approaches to preventing and vanquishing disease.

Some of the notable speakers and journalists who participated in our past conferences include former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, social icons Sean Parker, Katy Perry and Dr. Deepak Chopra; Nobel laureates such as Dr. James P. Allison, health care leaders like Dr. Francis S. Collins and Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach, and journalists Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Robin Roberts, Meredith Vieira and Katie Couric. Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI  and His Holiness Pope Francis had addressed our participants inspiring us to continue our efforts in impacting and improving human health.

The 2021 International Vatican Conference is the fifth in a series of global health care events in Vatican City over the last decade. The Cura-Vatican events have reached more than 3 billion people, captured more than 1 billion impressions, and generated over 4 thousand separate news stories. The conference will build on a social and health care movement that began ten years ago. It will bring people together to catalyze cross-disciplinary collaboration to better health. By raising awareness of scientific advancements, we will inspire hope for patients and families around the world. We will #UniteToPrevent & #UniteToCure.
