The Geneva Health Forum (GHF), a biennial event launched in 2006 and held in the Spring, combines plenary and parallel sessions attended by hundreds of participants, with a large international exhibition area. 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.
Geneva provides a unique opportunity to the leading global health organizations to meet with governmental delegations appointed by most countries through their permanent UN representations. Indeed, Geneva hosts major international organizations in charge of health and humanitarian action, influential foundations, NGOs and public-private partnership organizations in the field of global health.
