Who Are We?
The Geneva Health Forum (GHF) is the forum that brings together key actors to help find solutions to global health challenges. Created in 2006, it is organised by the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) and the University of Geneva in partnership with 30 global health organisations, with the overall goal to contribute to improving health and care access in the world.
As the complexity of global health challenges is growing, answering to those challenges requires a multidisciplinary approach as well as being able to bring innovative solutions. Building on the dynamic of International Geneva, where it is located, the Geneva Health Forum provides a continuous platform for collaboration and organises one of the most important international conferences on global health every two years.
