Welcome to the Geneva Global Health Platform!


This is a meeting ground for those who are committed to improving the health and well-being of more people in more places. This forum is a continuation of the many fruitful dialogues launched at the four past editions of the Geneva Health Forum conference. Read more…

On the Geneva Global Health Platform, you build your knowledge networks or research teams, you launch and debate issues close to your heart, test ideas that you wish to write about or research. It is for you to decide which of the groups created by you should be open and which private. It is for you to decide whom to invite to participate and who to moderate your discussions. The Forum provides fantastic options for storing all the work of your group in one place, be it text documents or audio-visuals. Consider this your space for Global Health.

You may join an existing group that is of interest to you or you may set up your own group and invite collaborators and peers. You can announce events related to Global Health and reach a wide audience. You can organize your students into a thematic group and run the discussions through this platform.
