Be part of the inaugural international Global Health Security Conference

With support of our Conference Partners, the University of Sydney are hosting the first international conference on global health security in Sydney, 18-20 June 2019 - registrations are now open 

The conference will bring together practitioners, researchers, educators, representatives and decision-makers across the fields of public health, medicine, veterinary science, agriculture, government, defence, international relations, sociology and anthropology to examine the progress made to date in strengthening health systems and identify the gaps and opportunities for enhancing the international community’s ability to respond more efficiently and effectively to future adverse health crises.

The conference aims to:

  • Bring together stakeholders working in global health security to measure progress, determine gaps, and identify new opportunities to enhance national, regional and global health security;
  • Provide a venue for government officials and international organisations to share policy developments, hear from the research community, and create a space for side meetings that advance the health security agenda;
  • Establish and solidify a health security ‘community of practice’ and guiding principles;
  • Through an open call for abstracts, highlight work from partners around the world, bringing cutting edge, evidence-based research to the community;
  • Provide an opportunity for students to showcase their research;
  • Consider creating a professional association for global health security; and
  • Develop and endorse a ‘Sydney Statement’ on global health security.
