Global Health Landscape Symposium 2019
Passing the Baton in Global Health
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 #DemocratizeGlobalHealth. To 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.
