James Orbinski at the Geneva Health Forum

Recurring Event see all

November 16 @ 12:00 pm - November 18 @ 12:00 pm

The Geneva Health Forum (GHF) is the forum of innovative practices in Global Health. Created in 2006 by the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) and the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva, and taking place every two years, the Geneva Health Forum is one of the most important international conferences on Global Health. Nowadays, crucial Global Health actors, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), are among the key partners of the Geneva Health Forum.

As the complexity of global health challenges is growing, answering to those challenges requires a multidisciplinary approach as well as being able to bring innovative solutions. The Geneva Health Forum aims to present innovative, accessible and sustainable practices in order to facilitate access to care and health equity.

Dahdaleh Institute Director, Dr. James Orbinski, will participate in the panel, Humanitarian work at a time of environmental and climate crisis: Planetary Health perspectives and field implications.
