Geneva Health Forum : A Critical Shift to Chronic Conditions
Geneva, 18-20 April 2012
SMIH/GHF Geneva Health Forum has come to be seen as the flagship conference in Global Health in Switzerland. This is where the global debate on access to health is infused with insights and innovative solutions of the frontliners. Each edition of the Geneva Health Forum attracts more than 1’000 participants from all over the world. Chronic conditions pose a major challenge to our health systems. As these conditions are influenced by changing lifestyles and socio-economic factors like urbanization, demographic developments, climate change, but also gender inequities, a multi-sectorial approach is needed. The format of Geneva Health Forum 2012 is adapted to this need.
