In light of the current coronavirus disease pandemic, and following much careful consideration, Lund University and the Swedish Society of Medicin have decided to postpone the Swedish Global Health Conference until further notice.

The Covid-19 pandemic poses unique challenges for how we meet and interact, challenges that will persist for the foreseeable future. During the coming months we will therefore consider, discuss and reflect on how international research gatherings should be organized going forward. What have we learned from the pandemic and how we can harness the power of digital tools to produce a meeting in a new global environment?

About SGHC2020

The third Swedish Global Health Conference will bring together over 600 researchers, students, policy makers and practitioners from the Nordic Countries and beyond to explore how we can leverage collaboration and innovation for improving health and well-being for those in most need.

We invite you to take part in the Swedish Global Health Conference: Achieving the sustainable goals through social innovation and multidisciplinary action.

The world is currently off-track to reach many of the health-related sustainable development goals. We all need contribute and improve the health of the world – and new perspectives and knowledge are critical to accelerate progress. Through panels and interactive workshops, the conference will explore the field global health. The conference is a platform for everyone who wants to learn more about the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Swedish Global Health Conference aspires to be a platform to discuss how different disciplines, sectors and academic fields can contribute to improve global health. We therefore welcome everyone with an interest in global health, ranging from students, active researchers, health practitioners, civil society, the government and other stakeholders to take part and challenge current thinking.


Take part: Propose a workshop

SGHC 2020 strives to be a conference that truly embraces the contributions different disciplines can make to advancing global health. Global Health goes beyond medical sciences and we hope that this conference will contribute to challenging old, and offering new, perspectives and knowledge of relevance for this field.

We therefore welcome workshop proposal that are either:

  • Linked to the conference theme of social innovation and multidisciplinary action.
  • Broadly linked to global health and offering new perspectives and knowledge.
