Global Health Forum 2018: Innovative Approaches to Global Health Challenges in Low and Middle-Income Countries
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).
The Global Health Forum aims to draw special attention to global health challenges in LMICs most of which are geographically located in the Global South. The overarching theme of the first biennial global health forum is “Innovative Approaches to Global Health Challenges in Low and Middle-Income Countries”. The forum will be organized by the Global Health Institute in collaboration with the Consortium of Universities for Global Health.
The forum will focus on initiatives and approaches addressing six of the 17 SDGs including: good health and well being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, industry innovation and infrastructure, reduced inequalities, and partnerships for the goals.
The Forum convenes stakeholders from various disciplines to showcase innovative ideas and practical cases of innovations in global health either originating in or applicable to the LMIC context.
