The Forum of Innovative Practices in Global Health

The Geneva Health Forum, created in 2006, is one of the most important conferences of Global Health.

Every two years the GHF brings together Swiss and International participants from all sectors.



The overall goal of the Geneva Health Forum is to promote innovative practices that improve care access, especially in resource-poor settings.

To achieve this goal, the Geneva Health Forum aims to:

  • give visibility to innovative field experiences;

  • establish a critical and constructive dialogue and promote collaborations between global health actors from different sectors including practitioners, academics, policy makers, civil society and the private sector;

  • promote interaction between actions in the field and health policy development (linking policy and practice). This applies both to guiding policies through best practices and to facilitating policy diffusion at the field level.


Geneva International Capital


Geneva is the Global Health Capital. It’s the headquarters of the World Health Organization (WHO) but also it hosts a large number of international governmental and non-governmental organizations active in the field of public health.

Geneva is the Capital of Human Rights. With the presence of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the International Office for Migration, the Human Rights Council and the main NGOs active in the field, Geneva is an essential place for the promotion and the protection of human rights and humanitarian action.
