To tackle disease we need evidence to be generated through every type of health research study. This conference aims to bring together health research teams, organisations, health-workers, policy makers and practitioners to explore together how health research can be embedded into every healthcare setting.

The Global Health Network is also celebrating 10 years of mobilising research skills, know-how and methods to foster capable teams that generate new treatment strategies and prevention mechanisms that reduce the burden of disease within communities.

This is an opportunity to discover and share excellence in health research across disease areas, geographies and types of research and generate outputs that can be taken up and used by others.

Provisional Scientific Program

  1. Enabling research in every healthcare setting to tackle local priorities and embed lasting research capabilities.

We look forward to meeting you at the conference!


We invite our partners to hold focus symposia within their area of interest. For example, we are planning symposia on AMR, a focus session for nurses working in research, and another on biorepositories. We aim for these focus areas to encourage and facilitate sharing of know-how in the specific topic between disease areas, teams, across geographies and organisations.
