FP Global Health Forum

June 28, 2022 | Washington, D.C.

Robust and resilient global health systems for the future of public health

As the world continues to contend with the repercussions of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Foreign Policy will convene its inaugural Global Health Forum as a platform for global health experts to discuss the most pressing issues and developing trends in international public health.

This hybrid Forum will explore key pathways to revitalize our health systems and better prepare for the global risks that lie ahead. Reflecting on lessons learned over the past few years, global leaders in public health will explore strategies for investing in more resilient health systems, supporting frontline workers and caregivers, expanding healthcare equity, and strengthening healthcare supply chains. The leading voices in global health will explore how public, private, and civic leaders can prepare for under-discussed risks, including those resulting from antibiotic resistance, climate change, and biowarfare.
