The Swedish Global Health Research Conference 2018

2018-04-18 to 2018-04-19 Aula MedicaCampus Solna

In the era of the Sustainable Development Goals and in an increasingly globalized world, global health is a key area for research, education, and practice. We invite you to take part in the Swedish Global Health Research Conference: How can Sweden contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals? From Research to Action, 18-19 April, at KI. 

Through short panels and interactive, expert-led workshops, we will explore how interdisciplinary research in global health can contribute to the fulfilment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The goal of the conference is to strengthen interdisciplinary research in global health across all universities in Sweden. Conceived by the Swedish Society of Medicine’s Committee for Global Health, the conference is organized by representatives from all seven medical faculties in Sweden, and will be hosted by the Department of Public Health Sciences.
