CORE Group Global Health Practitioners Conference

Friday, April 6, 2018 to Friday, July 6, 2018
Event Description: 

Join us to discuss emerging challenges and gaps in community health, and explore tools and interventions to address them through skill building, networking, and program learning. As you engage in dialogue and learning with diverse stakeholders, you will contribute to greater programmatic impact through collaboration.

This conference will focus on navigating the humanitarian-development nexus through community health action.

The Conference aspires that by its end, participants will have contributed to and gained:

  • Greater understanding of why a humanitarian+development approach is important to achieving our vision of global community health for all
  • New ideas and actions on how to advance evidence-based policies, strategies, partnerships, and practices in a complex and fluid area
  • New partnerships for future collaborations to advance humanitarian+development approaches
  • Awareness of the questions and the remaining gaps.

The Conference is open to everyone. Participants include CORE Group Member NGOs and Associates, academics, advocates, donors, private sector representatives—all those working to advance community health.

Can’t attend in person? Several sessions will be broadcast live for all to participate. More information coming soon.
