REGISTER NOW Global Health Partnerships Exhibition

This dynamic event gives students and professionals the chance to interact with representatives from a range of organisations in Global Health, learning more about their work and potential opportunities for involvement.

Lord Nigel Crisp will be giving a keynote speech on Friday 9th March from 6:30-8:30pm, as well as opening the exhibition on Saturday 10 March.

At the exhibition, representatives from a range of organisations in global health will interact with students and professionals, who are interested in learning more about their organisational approach, and their opportunities for involvement.

Organisations represented will range from

· multilaterals (like WHO ),

· to private sector Pharma companies who are doing R&D in infectious diseases of poverty,

· to international NGOs and private consultancies with global health programmes,

· to UK-based universities with global health research and teaching programmes,

· and more!

The full list of participating organisations and their opportunities for involvement (volunteer/intern/professional) are coming soon to the Humanitarian Centre’s website and this page.

There will be a series of “ignite” style presentations by leading global health thinkers, which will present challenges in global health, and help attendees to frame insightful questions to ask the representatives.

During the exhibition we will also be holding the Official 2012 Cambridge Aid for Health Simulation, where students, trained by mentors from WHO , DFID, USAID , the Department of Health, and others and will take part in a simulated aid negotiation set in a developing country. “Press passes” will be available during the exhibition, to observe an aid negotiation in action!

This is a great event for anyone who aspires to a career in Global Health, to network with international, UK and Cambridge-based health organisations from across sectors and subsectors – multilaterals, biomedical publishing, SMEs, consultancies, ING Os, NGOs…

The Cambridge Global Health Year brings together individuals and organisations – from across disciplines, sectors, and countries – to explore appropriate approaches to pressing global health issues.
