Registration is open! The CCIH 2021 Conference will be a virtual event held in May with six sessions spread out over three weeks that focus on hearing from global voices and sharing practical experience and learning, with time set aside to make connections, and have meaningful dialogue and fellowship.

The six sessions will be held on May 11, 13, 18, 20, 25, and 27 from 8:00 to 11:00 am U.S. EDT each day. Our theme is Cultivating Unity in Global Health, and during the six sessions we will explore how faith actors are cultivating unity through:

  • Leadership & Governance
  • Community Ownership and Co-creation
  • Learning
  • Technology
  • Health Systems

Initial confirmed speakers include:

  • Joshua Bogunjoko, SIM International Director on the opening day May 11, focusing on Unity in Global Health.
  • Jonathan Quick, Managing Director for Pandemic Response, Preparedness, and Prevention at The Rockefeller Foundation and author of The End of Epidemics: The Looming Threat to Humanity and How to Stop It, on May 11.
  • Koki Agarwal, Project Director, USAID’s MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership on May 13 as we focus on Leadership and Governance.
  • Sister Priscilla Busingye, President of the Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Uganda and 2020 winner of the African Mission Healthcare’s annual L’Chaim Prize on May 18 as we explore Community Ownership and Co-Creation.
  • Harold Koenig, Director of the Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health, at the Duke University Medical Center and expert on the positive influence of religious involvement on public health, on May 20.

The rest of the program will be available in early March. We hope you will join us as we hear from these global voices and more!

Our guiding verse is “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit.” Ephesians 4:2-4
