1) Academia and Global Health

Session will provide different insights from across the academic community as to how global health collaborations can be pursued academically. Each academic will provide a brief overview of their area of research and its significance to the global health agenda, and a chaired panel session will then seek to explore how these areas can complement each other in multidisciplinary research programmes which may be based around a given country, population, or clinical problem.

Confirmed panellists: Lucy Byrne Davis, John Clarkson, Peter Hutchinson, Carmel McEniery
David Dunne (Chair)

2) Healthcare professionals in global health partnerships
Session will explore the many and varied opportunities for all healthcare professionals, clinical and non-clinical, to engage with global health partnerships, and will discuss the benefits of multidisciplinary working in global health partnerships.

Confirmed panellists: Alistair Bolt, Rowan Burnstein, Sarah Cavanagh, Sharon Stone
Sue Broster (Chair)

3) Best practice and funding environment for global health partnerships

Session will consider current concepts around safe, ethical, and effective practice in global health partnerships from both a clinical and academic perspective. It will also provide insight into the funding landscape that supports these complementary efforts, and how best to integrate these two arms of global health improvement.

Confirmed panellists: Ged Byrne, Ben Simms
