The Global Health Conference 2020 will be held virtually from October 19 to 21, 2020
The APRU Global Conference is a significant occasion that brings together those dedicated to global health from across the globe. This year, the conference will focus on the theme, Universal Healthcare across the Life Course, and defines it in the global health practice, research, and theory. The theme reflects not only the inter-dependence of the whole society but also health equity throughout the life course within and among countries.
To ensure all people have access to needed promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services, Universal Health Coverage (UHC) across the life course is a critical component to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages in.
The conference will be an invaluable opportunity for those working in the field of global health to share and exchange knowledge and build networks. We look forward to welcoming global health experts and scholars around the globe to attend the conference.
