WORLD HEALTH SUMMIT 2020
25-27 October 2020 | Berlin, Germany
WHS -"The World Health Summit really has put Germany on the map in
terms of Global Health leadership. But also it brings together people
who work in Global Health who are normally not sitting in the same room.
That in itself is a major achievement and a necessity for future
achievements." Peter Piot Director, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, United Kingdom.
Re-imagining health systems for better health and social justice
8-12 November 2020 | Dubai, United Arab Emirates
6th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research
hsr2020 Ten years on from the First Global Symposium on
Health Systems Research, health systems around the world are still far
from achieving the Sustainable Development Goal to “Ensure healthy lives
and promote well-being for all at all ages”.
They remain predominantly sick care systems - disconnected from the
broader upstream forces influencing health. A fundamental paradigm shift
is needed if health systems are to be equipped to address complex and
interconnected health and development challenges.
The Sixth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2020) will
seek to break old silos and re-orient health systems to address public
health and engage the political, social, and environmental forces that
perpetuate health inequities and social injustices. It will explore how
technological, data and social innovations can address these challenges,
and how health systems research can support essential transformations
in health systems.
2020 Global Conference on Health and Climate Change
14-15 November 2020 | Glasgow, UK
World Health Organisation (WHO) The 2020 Global
Conference on Health & Climate Change with a special focus on
Climate Justice, will convene at the margin of the COP26 UN climate
change conference. The aim of the conference is to support and showcase
Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement which
are ambitious, based on the principles of justice and equity, and
promote and protect health. It will also mobilize the rapidly growing
movement of health professionals around the world who are now driving
ambitious climate action.
