Geneva Health Forum: Globalization, Crisis, and Health Systems - Confronting Regional Perspectives


The 2010 Geneva Health Forum will be held April 19-21 in Geneva and aims to identify sustainable local and regional responses to crises that jeopardize recent health accomplishments and exacerbate the strains on healthcare services, health professionals and local communities. These crises, by revealing existing weaknesses and disparities, offer the participants the opportunity to formulate potential reforms and innovation. Creating a dynamic confrontation of perspectives, including all stakeholders active in the health sector, new forms of governance and partnering can be explored.

In addition, the forum will also investigate how innovative research and technologies can influence practice to facilitate access to health and care. Special emphasis will be given to e-health technologies, which create unique opportunities to disseminate information to improve practices. Themes for the forum include health workforce task shifting, community participation in health systems, health professional web networks and education in global health.
