In by Marc Pitre

Conference Overview

The CORE Group Fall 2016 Global Health Practitioner Conference brought together representatives of CORE Group Member and Associate Organizations and other community-focused global health practitioners, policy makers, researchers, private sector partners, and donors. Attendees exchanged and learned about community health approaches and good practices, connected with their global health peers, and strategized on joint efforts in Working Groups. The Conference drew 253 participants from 7 countries representing 75 organizations and 10 universities. An additional 48 remote participants from around the wrold joined in the live broadcasts of the keynote and plenaries.

Delving into the conference theme of “Community Health Transitions: Leading for Impact,” we highlighted the variety of transitions seen in the field, and the opportunities and challenges they present through discussion of emerging challenges and gaps in community health, and exploration of tools and interventions to address them.
