Global health stakeholders are facing change. Our community has experienced a number of shockwaves in recent months that reflect the shifting burden, leadership, and resource landscape for global health worldwide. Civil society, industry, and political players alike have been challenged to think critically about the future of global health and their role in its transition.
Now is the time for us to come together and take stock of the changes we face – from emerging priorities and investors to new ownership and messaging – and understand the road ahead. What is our core mission and responsibility as a community, and how do we accomplish those objectives moving forward? How do we balance fighting for existing initiatives and entities while presenting alternatives that ensure investments are sustained? How can we continue to make progress in global health amidst moving parts and unresolved debates? Answering these and other questions will enable us to fulfill our mandate within the current context.
This one-day meeting will convene policy and program leads from global health organizations across multiple sectors and encourage crucial conversations that drill down on barriers and best practices to address changes in the global health landscape. Speakers include executives from GHC member organizations and other global health leaders. Both speakers and participants will be asked to propose both aspirational ideas and pragmatic solutions for the benefit of people served by nonprofit organizations, for‐profit corporations, and government institutions.
