Following the success of the first “Swedish Global Health Education Conference” in Umeå in 2016, it is now time to save the date for the first “Swedish Global Health Research Conference” taking place in Stockholm on 18–19 April 2018.
The goal of the conference is to strengthen interdisciplinary research in global health across all universities in Sweden. Conceived by the Swedish Society of Medicine’s Committee for Global Health, the conference is organized by representatives from all seven medical faculties in Sweden, and will be hosted by the Department of Public Health Sciences at Karolinska Institutet.
An official invitation with more information will be sent out soon – until then, please make sure to note the dates in your agenda!
