9th Annual CUGH Global Health Conference | 16 – 18 March 2018

Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH)’s annual meeting has become the world’s leading academic global health conference. It will bring together leaders from academia, NGOs, think tanks, the private sector and government. Over 1700 professionals, educators and students from diverse fields including medicine, nursing, public health, veterinary sciences, engineering, business, law, public policy, urban planning, natural sciences, environmental studies and more will explore ways we can address the global health challenges before us.
This year’s theme, Health Disparities: A Time for Action, reflects one of the world’s great challenges. The increasing gap in opportunity, security, health and prosperity between the poor and middle class, and the rich, continues to grow and threatens to undermine the gains in development we have seen over the last few decades.
The conference will be  a forum for engagement, learning and collaboration to strengthen our efforts to impact the enormous challenges before us. We will have continuity with previous sub-themes: planetary health- One Health- environmental health; governance and institution strengthening; infectiou diseases; non-communicable diseases and the social determinants of health,
​and we will introduce new ones.
Co-hosts for the conference are Columbia University (USA), Stellenbosch University (South Africa) and University of Peradeniya (Sri Lanka).
