Geneva Health Forum 8th Edition

Monday, 16 November 2020 to Wednesday, 18 November 2020

The Geneva Health Forum (GHF) is the forum of innovative practices in Global Health. Created in 2006 by the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) and the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva, and taking place every two years, the Geneva Health Forum is one of the most important international conferences on Global Health. Nowadays, crucial Global Health actors, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), are among the key partners of the Geneva Health Forum.

With the overall goal of contributing to improve health and care access in the world, the Geneva Health Forum brings together key global health actors to discuss current global health challenges. With an average of over 1500 participants from all sectors (such as field actors, academics, and the private sector) the Geneva Health Forum gives a voice to actors from the field and bridges them with policy-makers present in Geneva. In order to help answer to current challenges, the Geneva Health Forum gives visibility to innovative, accessible and sustainable practices and tools that can allow for better access to health and care worldwide.

Given the current global pandemic, and for the safety of all its participants, the Geneva Health Forum will be entirely virtual for the first time. Usually offering about 70 sessions, this edition will comprise of 21 online streaming sessions dedicated to crucial global health challenges, starting with the global pandemic that is impacting us all, but without forgetting issues that affect millions of people worldwide, such as cancer, neglected tropical diseases, Universal Health Coverage, digital health and artificial intelligence, SDGs or the resilience of societies in front of global health crises.

To keep the spirit of the Forum, this 8th edition will also offer institutional and commercial virtual exhibition booths, a fully virtual Innovation Fair showcasing more than 120 innovations, E-Posters and a networking tool. It will also give visibility to the successes and challenges encountered by the network of GHF partners and contributors in their search to improve health worldwide.
