The Geneva Health Forum


19th to 21st April 2016, Geneva, Switzerland.

The Geneva Health Forum (GHF), a biennial event launched in 2006 and held in spring, combines plenary and parallel sessions attended by hundreds of participants, with a large international exhibition area. Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) along with the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva, and Swiss and international organizations committed to Global Health have joined their talents and resources to organize the Geneva Health Forum.

The GHF was established to link policy and practice, and addresses health issues through an integrative approach. It is known as the largest event in Europe gathering such a distinguished audience, composed of academic leaders, practitioners, policy makers, diplomats, representatives of donor agencies and healthcare providers. Keynotes lectures and plenary sessions are given by international health leaders, and series of workshops, oral and poster sessions are held. These foster and nurture stimulating discussions on major global health issues. All plenary sessions as well as a track of parallel sessions are simultaneously translated in French and English. The GHF also provides a platform for showcasing the international and humanitarian, practice and solution-oriented commitment of the participants, and gives a voice to those active in the frontlines of global health.
