CORE Group


In June 2018, CORE Group hosted its annual Global Health Practitioner  conference, this year, with a focus on the Humanitarian-Development Nexus. It gathered 284 participants, representing 103 different organizations and over 18 different countries. Dr. Paul Spiegel, MD, MPH, gave the keynote address, focusing on the need for action at the humanitarian development nexus, specifically around displaced people. The conference was run with the main goals of giving participants new ideas on how to advance policy, new partnerships to advance the future of humanitarian and development approaches, as well as a greater understanding of the importance of a humanitarian and development approach to achieving CORE’s vision of global community health for all.
