CS01: CONCURRENT SESSION
Ethical Considerations for Global Health Education, Training & Practice
As the field of global health continues to expand and redefine the way in which health is practiced and experienced, issues relating to ethics are increasingly at the forefront of decision-making for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. What’s more, the practice of students undertaking global health work abroad raises a number of ethical considerations for academic institutions and the receiving or host institution. For these reasons and more importantly for the need to better understand the key issues and challenges within global health, this panel of well-respected scholars and practitioners will provide a timely discussion on ethics within global health research, policy, and practice.

Achieving UHC Through Primary Health Care: Reflection on Alma Ata at 40 from the Lancet Commission
on Investing in Health

The 1978 Declaration of Alma-Ata was a milestone, pushing primary health care (PHC) to the top of the agenda. Its 40th anniversary was marked at a conference in October 2018 in Kazakhstan, at which a new declaration, “Alma Ata 2.0,” was written. The Lancet’s special issue on Alma Ata at 40 had as its centerpiece a report by the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health (CIH) reflecting on what primary health care means in the UHC era. In this panel, authors of the new CIH report will explore the question: “Where next for UHC after Alma Ata at 40?”

Human Rights in Global Health: Rights-based Governance for a Globalizing World
Global governance matters for the advancement of human rights in public health. Given the dramatic development of human rights under international law and the parallel proliferation of global institutions for public health, there arises an imperative to implement human rights through global health governance. This panel examines the evolving relationship between human rights and global health in: (1) the World Health Organization, (2) United Nations organizations, (3) global economic governance, and (4) the UN human rights system. By comparing organizational dynamics across institutions, this panel assesses institutional factors that facilitate or impede human rights mainstreaming for global health advancement.

Leadership and Management: Critical Barriers to Improving Health Outcomes
Former CDC Director William Foege stated, “the lack of management skills appears to be the single most important barrier to improving health throughout the world.” Strong leadership and management capacity are essential ‘force multipliers’ within health systems that increase the prospect of better health outcomes. However, without consensus on definitions and investment in robust evaluations to measure impact, evidence isn’t available to inform decisions regarding prioritization, adaptation, or scale-up. Panelists will describe efforts to build leadership and management and discuss the pressing need to create a shared agenda for professionalization of leadership and management education in the global health context.

CS08: CONCURRENT SESSION
Cities as Drivers of Global Health
Cities are the economic engines of the globe, but they also consume the majority of the world's energy and generate the majority of its waste and air pollution.  Problem solving to secure health in cities requires political leadership and attention to the health impacts of policies across government agencies, public-private partnerships and interdisciplinary scholarship to address the broad determinants of health. Both are changes from traditional approaches, yet central to achieving the global health agenda of the SDGs and UNHabitat's New Urban Agenda.  This panel will explore the important links between research, education and policy making to advance urban health.

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on a Rights-based Approach to Global Health
It is well established that human rights violations result in adverse health effects. While the benefits of a rights-based approach to health are convincing, barriers often prevent the interdisciplinary partnerships necessary to advance the right to health. In this panel, we seek to break down disciplinary and practical barriers between health and human rights practitioners by illustrating how we have integrated a rights-based approach to global health in law, social science, research, and program development at the community level.​​

Diversifying the Global Health Knowledge Pipeline
It is imperative that diversity and inclusivity be improved across all aspects of the production of the global health knowledge pipeline - from the recruitment and retention of women and minorities into research careers, to participation in peer review and publishing that reflects the gender and geographic breadth of global health research. Several barriers to diversity and inclusion have been identified, and these are exacerbated for women researchers from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This session will explore and debate ways we can move beyond individualised interventions to better understand the structural barriers to women's full participation in global health knowledge production. The challenges and opportunities that are unique to women scientists working in LMICs will be discussed and ideas on how we can address structural barriers to the recongnition and participation of LMIC women will be generated.

Towards Equity in Global Health Collaborations: Do Academic Promotions Criteria Need to Change?
In global health research collaborations between high-income country (HIC) and low- and middle-income country (LMIC) researchers, HIC researchers frequently reap disproportionate benefits: more opportunities for authorship, particularly in prime first or last positions; more opportunities to present research; and more funding. Yet HIC researchers attempting to redress this imbalance may find their efforts at odds with the publish-or-perish promotion pressures of their home institutions. This panel will examine evidence of inequities in global health research and the contribution of academic promotions criteria to these inequities, culminating in recommendations for overhauling promotions criteria to improve collaborative practice.

Pathology and Diagnostics in Africa - Post-graduate Medical Training: Models for Clinical, Research, and Teaching Tracts in Global Health Settings
Mentoring is a proven path to scientific progress, but is not yet a common practice in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs). We produced a comprehensive methodology of mentoring for LMICs published in the special edition of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Seven articles illustrate how to tailor mentoring to the context and culture of LMICs, and provide guidance on implementation. Now is the time to act to improve this LMIC-led approach to strengthen mentoring programs in LMICs. This “call to arms” invites global health scientists including partners from high-income countries to lead and support these efforts.
