The theme of the 2021 Global Health Conference is on Global Urban Health.  

Why Global Urban Health

Urbanization and enlarging cities are inexorable global trends. Over 55% of the world’s population now lives in urban cities, and this proportion is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. The health consequences of such population changes are increasingly recognized as a key towards sustainable human development. Cities present opportunities and challenges, which holds the key to citizens’ health and well-being. 


In this connection, the 2021 Global Health Conference aims to facilitate inter-sectoral exchanges of world-class expertise and dissemination of cutting-edge findings on global urban health; and to brainstorm solutions to today’s pressing challenges related to rapidly growing cities with local and overseas policymakers, professional services practitioners and relevant stakeholders of high, middle to low-income settings.
