BLINDSPOTS IN THE GLOBAL AGENDA
18-19th March 2017 | University of Sussex
The Annual Sussex Global Health and Development Conference encompasses discussions and expert insight on contemporary global health matters and inspiring action on the local, national and global stage. Following the success of the inaugural event themed, ‘Practical Solutions in Effective Healthcare for All’ in April 2016, we have decided to address critical global health issues marginalised by mainstream and established agendas, with a focus on Nutrition, Mental Health and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). Staged across two engaging and informative days in mid-March, this year’s event will feature over 50 guest speakers representing a broad spectrum of backgrounds in global health and development. The weekend will focus on a selection of key issues informed by experienced colleagues in the field, delivered through plenary sessions, panel discussions, breakout sessions, small-group seminars and film screenings. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Sussex this Spring. Our 2nd annual conference is entitled ‘Blind Spots in the Global Agenda’.
