UCPH Global Health Day

UCPH Global Health Day

University of Copenhagen’s School of Global Health is launching the UCPH Global Health Day on 14 September - the first in a series of annual symposia about global health challenges. The topic for 2023 is ‘Continuity of chronic health care among forcibly displaced persons’.

About the symposium

The number of displaced persons in the world is growing at an alarming rate. The fragmented access to healthcare and medication caused by displacement poses a serious health risk to those living with chronic health conditions. Yet, we still have a limited understanding of what it takes to maintain continuity of care for displaced persons living with chronic illnesses. While there is scant evidence from different fields, there is an urgent need to bring these disparate fields together to share experiences and good practices. 

The purpose of this one-day symposium is therefore to bring together researchers and practitioners to present and reflect on the current state of research, policy and practice, and to identify steps needed to elevate the field going forward. The symposium organisers invite abstracts from anyone working or doing research within the field of health care among forcibly displaced persons. The programme will also invite participants to work on a mini case challenge in the afternoon, and the symposium will culminate with the publishing of a Special Issue of a journal on the topic.

The symposium is free and open to everyone.
