2019 Global Health Landscape Symposium

December 5, 2019 - December 6, 2019

Organized by Global Health Council

2019 Global Health Landscape Symposium

Friday, December 6, 2019

FHI 360 Conference Center
1825 Connecticut Ave. NW, 8th Floor
Washington, DC 20009


This year’s symposium will explore a number of themes and considerations that get to the heart of what it will mean – for all actors – to #DemocratizeGlobalHealthTo achieve health for all people, national health programs must be driven by country strategies, local leadership, and domestic resources rather than external donors or partners.

This approach requires passing the baton from international and bilateral agencies to stakeholders on the frontlines. A revolution in global health thinking will require finally adopting new ideas or goals and shifting our joint narratives and campaigns moving forward.

Now is the time for the global health community to change the status quo and commit to different models driven from the ground up.

Our agenda is in development, so please check back for updates. We aim to have a participatory event that assesses the current landscape of global health policy and defines actionable advocacy strategies for the future.
