Global Public Health Conference: Trading Health

Date: 16 November 2011
Venue: Wellington House, 133-155 Waterloo Road, SE1 8UG London


This year's Global Public Health Conference, organised by the Faculty of Public Health's Global Health Registrar's Group, will provide an opportunity to learn about the key interactions between trade and health.

The conference will explore ways in which we can make a difference in our local organisations by looking at ethical procurement and will involve an interactive exercise using the BMA?s recently launched Ethical Procurement for Health workbook.

Confirmed speakers include Professor Richard Smith, Head of the Faculty of Public Health and Policy and Professor of Health System Economics at LSHTM and author of the Lancet's Trade and Health series, and Dr Mahmoud Bhutta, advisor to the BMA's medical fair and ethical trade group.

During lunch and the afternoon you will have the chance to hear from and to 'speed date' a range of public health professionals who have maintained a global health flavour to their training and/or career.

Registration for the conference is now open and can be accessed at the Global Public Health Conference website. Price £30.
