Join us in Tromsø for the Global Health Conference, scheduled for October 23-24, 2024, at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. This conference will focus on pivotal aspects of global health, with an emphasis on the following themes:

  • Healthy Start: Delve into strategies for ensuring a healthy trajectory from pregnancy through neonatal care, encompassing healthy pregnancies, management of prematurity, delivery, and neonatal health. Discussions will explore how early life interventions can prevent long-term health conditions and promote optimal development.

  • Exposures: Examine the impact of environmental and behavioral exposures, including contaminants like lead and air pollution, as well as substance use during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence. Learn about effective programs and policies aimed at prevention, mitigation, and treatment.

  • Mental Health: Address the mental health challenges faced by children and adolescents, the influence of family dynamics, and the specific needs of vulnerable groups and those in conflict zones. Explore current programs and policies designed to support mental well-being in the younger population.

  • Preventing and Mitigating NCDs: Understand the early determinants and factors contributing to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) with origins in childhood and adolescence. Engage in discussions about preventive measures and policies that can reduce the risk of NCDs later in life.

This conference will bring together experts, practitioners, and policymakers to share insights and foster collaboration in the field of global health. We look forward to welcoming you to an event that promises to be both informative and transformative.
