RECAP OF GHLS18

Nearly 200 global health advocates came together at the 2018 Global Health Landscape Symposium (#GHLS18) on November 30, to revitalize the global health advocacy agenda. At the start of the day, we took the pulse of the audience to gauge feelings about the current global health landscape. What followed were rich discussions as we considered how to address both outstanding needs and future challenges, especially in the context of new global health leadership and strategies (i.e. Universal Health Coverage (UHC)). Finally, we emphasized the need to transform our advocacy efforts, both in how we mobilize support for our causes and craft our messages. The closing media panel provided a critical perspective on how to more effectively convey our news to the public. We greatly appreciated your high level of engagement and enthusiasm all day long!

A few other notable moments throughout the day include the following:

  • A video address from WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesuswho conveyed his gratitude to U.S. leadership in global health and encouraged the audience to look towards next year's high-level meeting on UHC
  • Keynote remarks from U.S. Representative Ami Bera (D-CA-07) who shared optimism regarding a new Congressional cohort, which may be open to doing things differently and will hopefully become new global health champions
  • Engaging conversations with our 35+ diverse speakers , who guided participants in creating actionable next steps

It was an intense day of discussions, learning, and networking, so in case you missed it, you can:
