Reframing Global Health in a Changing World


How does the global health sector evolve to continue to deliver impact in a changing world? The TGHC 2021 conference is taking place after a year in which we experienced, and continue to experience, unprecedented health and social challenges. Whilst the impact of these challenges has been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, many are deep-rooted, structural inequities that have existed for years. The pandemic has also drawn attention to the interconnectedness of our health systems and the critical importance of global public health.

The conference will explore innovative and adaptive approaches that have emerged in response to these inequities and challenges. How can we leverage the lessons learned throughout the pandemic, to prevent and better prepare for future pandemics, and tackle ongoing critical health needs and inequities? How can we reframe our global health guidelines, practices and policies in a changing world?
