Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

THET Annual Conference 2017

Location: Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London, N7 6PA

 FROM NATIONAL TO UNIVERSAL: THE UK CONTRIBUTION TO GLOBAL HEALTH

How is the UK contributing to global health? The Conference will feature over seventy speakers representing a broad spectrum of backgrounds in global health and development. The event is designed to enhance knowledge transfer between experts and participants, as well as to promote collaborative learning.

Whereas health partnerships remain the lens through which we observe the development world, in 2017 we take a broader look at the challenges we are facing in global health and how the NHS is responding. The event will enable you to orientate your own work in the wider context of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. You will leave the conference feeling fluent in the issues that matter as we work to deliver a world in which ‘no one is left behind’. The conference will also be a fantastic chance to hear from and network with key funders and donors, providing a platform for future discussions surrounding your health partnerships.

Overall the event is expected to welcome over 700 delegates from across the NHS and the global health sector.
