About the event

The CoreGroup Global Health Practitioner Conference: “Community Health Action for the Humanitarian-Development Nexus.”

June 4 – 7, 2018
Hyatt Regency Bethesda, 1 Bethesda Metro Center, Bethesda, MD, USA

Overview:
Humanitarian and development programming and policy can no longer be separate.

According to the United Nations, the protracted nature of humanitarian action is the new normal. Crises around the world have forced 65 million people from their homes, with displacement lasting 17 years on average. Populations in a perpetual state of emergency are signifanctly more prone to infectious disease and other serious but preventable health complications.

With millions of mothers, children, and babies at risk, we need to take action.

Real and lasting change will only endure when we all work together, coordinating and collaborating to scale effective solutions that bridge the humanitarian-development divide in health.

CORE Group is the unifying body to make that happen.

The June 2018 Global Health Practitioner Conference will be the first global gathering of humanitarian and development actors to prioritize evidence and lessons learned as we work toward collective community health outcomes.
