About

The Global Health Landscape Symposium (GHLS) is Global Health Council's annual thought leadership event, which convenes policy and program leads from global health organizations across multiple sectors to engage in crucial conversations that drill down on barriers and best practices to address changes in the global health landscape. Speakers and participants will be asked to propose both aspirational ideas and pragmatic solutions for the benefit of people served by nonprofit organizations, forā€profit corporations, and government institutions.

We came together last year in anticipation of funding and political trends, but this year we will reinvigorate our advocacy agenda to address these changes to the global health landscape head-on. Key objectives at this year’s event include identifying inroads and strategies that bolster global health investments and leadership; discussing setbacks to global health support; acknowledging constraints or limitations of the current environment; anticipating other forthcoming changes to the global health landscape; committing to evolve; and gaining information and tools to inform future planning and advocacy. View the preliminary agenda below. Speakers to be announced soon. 

Do you want to help us drive these crucial conversations? Consider being a GHLS18 sponsor today.

WELCOMING REMARKS

TAKING THE PULSE OF THE AUDIENCE

PLENARY:

Current Landscape
Where are we now? What have we learned in the last year and how did global health leaders fare? How is global health positioned for the upcoming year, in the context of the 2018 U.S. elections?

Plenary:

The Next Big Thing – Achieving Universal Health Coverage and Primary Health Care for All
Universal health coverage (UHC) has surfaced as a priority agenda item for the global health community. On the 40th anniversary of the Alma Ata Declaration, the global community is also making a commitment to the goal of primary health care (PHC) for all. What does it mean to pursue UHC/PHC as an agenda, and how do we broaden engagement?

CONCURRENT BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Breakout sessions provide the opportunity for a deep dive on the preceding plenary presentation. We will engage on how to advance UHC/PHC priorities tactically in the U.S. and in international fora. Each breakout session will be led by facilitators who will lead an interactive discussion with participants.

Session A: Universal Health Coverage in a U.S. Context
Session B: Universal Health Coverage in a Multilateral Context

LUNCH

PLENARY:

Transforming Global Health Advocacy
What are some new approaches, messaging, and tactics we can use to enhance advocacy? In this panel presentation, speakers will present innovative examples and discuss how the community can use such examples in advocacy.

CONCURRENT BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Breakout sessions provide the opportunity for a deep dive on the preceding plenary presentation. The conversations will cover the recognition and use of messaging that resonates with policymakers, and the mobilization of domestic and international grassroots advocates. Each breakout session will be led by facilitators who will lead an interactive discussion with participants.

Session C: Transforming Advocacy through Messaging
Session D: Transforming Advocacy through Mobilizing

CLOSING PLENARY:

Call to Action
Given the current U.S. and global policy and political landscape, UHC and other priority challenges, and the opportunity to leverage new advocacy tactics, what’s next?

NETWORKING SESSION:

Next Gen Leaders for a New Global Health Agenda
Students and young professionals are invited to participate in conversation hubs on various global health topics and to connect with seasoned professionals as mentors.
