The past decades have witnessed significant strides in global health, yet around two thirds of total deaths worldwide are attributed to preventable and treatable diseases, with the highest burden found in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and among women and children. Innovative approaches and technologies play a vital role in saving lives, improving overall health outcomes around the world and achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

At this one-day event, health journalists will discuss their reporting processes and the role of experts in their investigations.
