TFGH17: Finding Connections And Solutions For The Changing Face Of Global Health

WASHINGTON, March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — On March 1, 2017, Global Health Council (GHC), in partnership with the Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II, hosted the fourth annual The Future of Global Health Unconference (TFGH17) at the Hamilton Live in Washington, DC. This year, TFGH17 drew its largest gathering yet – more than 400 emerging and established global health professionals came together to connect with industry veterans and technical specialists from across the field.

In this current context, with critical cuts for global health funding and programs looming, the event provided an opportunity to discuss the challenges, solutions, and skills needed to advance progress in a range of global health issues and successfully navigate the shifting field. Mentors and participants agreed that the unconference was a great place to forge new connections while learning about pressing issues and challenges in the field.

“I was attracted to TFGH because I wanted to get insights on different issue areas. I love that the conversation hubs are led by highly experienced facilitators who bring a world of knowledge to the room,” said participant George Ndongai from the University of Maryland.

“… I think networking is very critical to our work as global health professionals. There are a lot of opportunities for collaboration and support that we can tap into when we connect with each other,” explained participant Eric Mensah from The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Global health practitioners led a series of 20 conversation hubs in their areas of expertise, engaging their groups in dynamic discussions on pressing topics in global health policy, including the gender-equality path to health, youth-led development, and leadership change in global health. Distinguished leaders included Temitao Ifafore, USAID Health Workforce Technical Advisor, GHFP-II/Public Health Institute; George Dougherty, Director, Global Health Security, Health Industries Advisory practice, PricewaterhouseCoopers; and Nellie Bristol, Senior Fellow, Global Health Policy Center, Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Experienced professionals hosted a series of 10-minute mentor sessions, where attendees had the opportunity to connect one-on-one around issues of their choosing. The diverse set of mentors included Jeff Meer, Executive Director, Handicap International; Rebecca Kohler, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Development, IntraHealth International; and Dr. Keith Martin, Executive Director, Consortium of Universities for Global Health.

GHFP-II held a photo contest for attendees to partake which provided an opportunity for one participant to win two free airline tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S. The winner will be announced on the GHFP-II website and social media platforms by March 15, 2017.

GHC and GHFP-II have partnered to convene global health professionals and stakeholders from across private, non-profit, government, academic, and donor sectors in a combined effort to help change the world. Other key sponsors included IntraHealth International and Global Impact.
