On Thursday, 19 March 2020, Cambridge Global Health Partnerships will be hosting the second biennial ‘East of England Global Health Conference’ at Hughes Hall.

The conference aims to connect global health professionals across disciplines, counties and countries. The conference will also consider the future of global health activity across the region.

Bringing together a high calibre panel of guest speakers, the all-day event will conclude with a keynote address by Professor Dame Sally Davies. Lectures, workshops and poster presentations will be divided into four sessions: Primary Care and Public Health, Research, Practice and Education. The East of England Conference aims to be a carbon neutral event.

The conference will also announce the launch of a new database that aims to map the global health network across the East of England and facilitate cross-county, interdisciplinary collaboration. It is hoped that the database will enable the East of England to maximise its potential to make further contributions to global health causes. Our organising partners are Hughes Hall, Cambridge Africa, NIHR Global Health Research Group on Neurotrauma, Cambridge Institute of Public Health and the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust.

“I am absolutely thrilled the East of England Global Health Conference is returning this year. This is such a great opportunity to share our clinical experience, knowledge and innovations in global health with academic colleagues across our region and beyond,” says Sarah Cavanagh, NHS Regional Information Pharmacist and co-organiser of the conference.
