We invite you to join us to support a transformational agenda to ensure fit-for-future hospitals and health systems. On 6 June, participate in a series of panel sessions taking a deep-dive into operational themes that affect lower resources settings in particular. This event will launch our new collaborative initiative on the future of hospitals in low resource settings.

Led by inspiring speakers and experts, discussions will cover three of our five key focus themes:

  1. Hospitals and health systems workforce support and development.
  2. Environmentally sustainable hospitals and health systems, focusing on low carbon, resilient and sustainable healthcare models.
  3. Resource mobilization and access to finance.

The event will be in English and French, with translation available.

We welcome: leaders and representatives of hospitals (public and private), professional associations, technical experts, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and civil society stakeholders.
