Interdisciplinary
Global Health Dialogue Series

You are invited to join the new Interdisciplinary Global Heath Dialogue Series, which will be held at Bielefeld University in 2020 and consist of approximately eight events over the year. 

The dialogue series aims to provide insights into a diverse range of contemporary topics and challenges related to global health. In doing so, the series aims to strengthen understanding of and interest in the global health landscape and to foster interdisciplinary and interprofessional exchange amongst researchers and other actors about global health research, policy and practice.

Esteemed international and German global health experts will speak at Bielefeld University as part of the dialogue series. 

The series is being organised by the Department of Population Medicine and Health Services Research (AG 2) in the School of Public Health, in coordination with other teams and faculties from across the university and with financial support provided by the Rectorate. For further information, please contact Ms. Victoria Saint
