The complexity of today’s global health challenges requires harnessing the skills and energies of many sectors and disciplines in order to develop innovative and effective solutions. Never has it been so urgent to further align interests and efforts in order to maintain gains and tackle the global health and development challenges ahead. As the world moves towards the edges of its planetary boundaries, achieving sustainable development and improving global health require actions on a much broader and systemic front. In this context health is a pre-condition and an outcome of all three dimensions of sustainable development – the economic, social, and environmental.
It’s time for health to incorporate the big picture of our contemporary challenges, therefore the overarching topic for the 2014 edition of the Geneva Health Forum will be ‘Integration’.
The Geneva Health Forum woudl like to encourage more practitioners such as nurses to submit abstracts and have therefore introduced a more practitioner friendly way of abstract submission in a Q&A format in addition to a traditional scientific format. The deadline for the abstract submission is 31 July. The Geneva Health Forum 2014 will provide a limited number of travel grants to participants from low income and lower-middle income countries and those whose submissions have been accepted for oral presentation may request for a travel grant.
Early Bird registration is from 15 October 2013 until 31 January 2014 and ICN members will get a discount.
