Swedish Global Health Conference 2020

Lund University, Malmö, 24-25 November 2020

Achieving the sustainable development goals through social innovation and multisectoral collaboration.

The Swedish Global Health Conference 2020 is organized by Lund University and the Swedish Society of Medicine’s Committee for Global Health, in collaboration with the University of Gothenburg, Uppsala University, Umeå University, Örebro University, Linköping University, and Karolinska Institutet.

The third Swedish Global Health Conference aims to bring together researchers, students, policy makers, civil society and practitioners from the Nordic Countries and beyond to explore how we can leverage multidisciplinary action and social innovation for improving health and well-being for those in most need. Social innovations are new ideas that meet societal needs, create social relationships, and form new collaborations.

The conference is relevant for everyone who wants to learn more about the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and 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 to take part and challenge current thinking in discussions framed around the pillars of sustainability, that is economic, social and environmental development.

Through a mix of plenary sessions, with profiled keynote speakers, and interactive workshops, participants will address current challenges, and potential solutions, for advancing the Agenda 2030 targets related to global health. The conference aspires to bridge the know-do gap by generating concrete suggestion for how to advance the SDGs, which will be forwarded to, and discussed with, policy makers.
