About Us

The 2016 Next Generation Global Health Forum (NGGHF) aims to create an interactive platform, bringing together over 150 participants from diverse geographical and cultural backgrounds across the globe. Several variables are known to govern the practice of global health, such as culture differences, demographic make-up, gender bias, access to technology, social media and economic status. To address today’s global health challenges more effectively, it is essential that the various parties involved in the this cause work together and have a clear understanding of where their individual roles and responsibilities begin and end.

What is Our Goal?

  • Building a bridge of understanding across the diverse sectors and players in global health
  • Advocating for more transparency and building stronger communication channels
  • Foster in-depth discussions
  • Raise awareness about the local and international difficulties that contribute to global health endeavors
