CORE Group’s Fall 2017 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 261 participants from over 20 countries representing 74 organizations and 8 universities. An additional 40 remote participants from around the world joined in the live broadcasts of the keynote and plenaries.
Through the conference theme of “Collaborating for Health Communities: Results, Realities, and Opportunities,” participants identified and discussed results of collaborative action for community health; challenged realities of operations research, program approaches, and changing environments; and explored opportunities for new partnerships and emerging voices for building healthy communities worldwide.
