Universities 2.0: Advancing Global Health in the Post-MDG Era

Welcome to the Consortium of Universities for Global Health’s (CUGH) 5th Global Health Conference, which will be held in Washington, DC, May 10-12, 2014 at the Washington Hilton hotel. This year’s theme is Universities 2.0 – Advancing the Global Health Agenda in the Post-MDG Era. It will showcase leading scientific advances in addressing the complex challenges we face.

As the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) come to an end in 2015, we will look at the future of the global health enterprise. The program reflects this environment.

Some of the stellar speakers confirmed include President of the World Bank Jim Kim; former Head of UNAIDS and current Director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Peter Piot; and Head of the Earth Institute at Columbia University Jeff Sachs. We also will have a special lecture by the winner of the 2014 Gairdner Awards’ Global Health Awardee. The 3-day meeting will provide  outstanding opportunities to learn about new scientific advances, participate in practical workshops, network, and develop new partnerships with global health leaders across disciplines.

There will be exhibits and abstract presentations, and workshops. In 2014, we will also have special features on innovation and new technologies.

We hope you will join us May 10 – 12, 2014 to teach and learn, network and build collaborations with peers and colleagues from around the world.
