2023 CUGH Conference

April 14, 2023 to April 16, 2023

Global Health at a Crossroads: Equity, Climate Change and Microbial Threats

CUGH’s annual conference is a must attend event on the global health calendar. Over 2,000 scientists, students and implementers from academia, NGOs, government and the private sector will present, learn and collaborate to address some of the pressing challenges our world faces. A wide range of medical and non-medical disciplines are represented throughout the virtual and in-person pre-conference satellite sessions (free to attend, register online) and the April 14-16th conference. Attendees will be inspired and challenged to learn new skills, gain new contacts and find ways we can improve the health of people and the planet.
