5th ISoGH’s Conference on Global Health – Final Programme will appear here 

Day 1: Emerging themes

The first day of the conference will focus on the emerging topics in global health research. The results of recent exercises conducted by ISoGH on setting research priorities using the CHNRI method will be presented. Tools to influence health economics and policy will be reviewed, and climate change effects on global health, effects of wars and violence on global health, and data science and artificial intelligence in global health will be discussed.

 

Day 2: Ongoing themes

The second day of the conference will address barriers to achieving universal health care and improve pandemic preparedness globally. It will also present the work of the Global Health Epidemiology Research Group (GHERG) in assessing the burden of diseases with a large burden in low- and middle-income countries that remain largely neglected. It will also present the tools such as EQUIST and PATHS, that could improve equity and social justice in funding allocation.

Knowledge exchange and dissemination in global health

Both days of the conference will discuss the optimal strategies for communicating and sharing global health knowledge and information in the era of “post-truth”. The speakers will revisit the current system of scientific publishing and explore the options that social networks provide for disseminating global health information, especially on policy-relevant research. Approaches to knowledge exchange on the use of methods and tools in global health research will be discussed.
