Keynote address speaker, Dr. Natalia Kanem, MD, MPH

Register for the Department of Global Health and Population’s Global Health Week Symposium and Poster Day on Friday, April 26 from 1:30-5:00 pm! Reception to follow.

Keynote address by Dr. Natalia Kanem, MD, MPH, Executive Director of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA).

Global Health Week 2024 will mark the 30th anniversary of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) held in Cairo. The ICPD redefined population and development issues by emphasizing that the protection of individual human rights, including gender equity and reproductive health and rights, must be at the heart of population and development programs. During Global Health Week, we will analyze the ICPD’s progress and setbacks, discuss current and future priorities, and explore topics not addressed in Cairo, such as climate change and LGBTQIA+ issues.

Additional panel speakers and information on our Global Health Week events will be announced here.
