Organized by Triangle Global Health Consortium
The 2014 Triangle Global Health Conference explored how to bridge the gap between innovations in research and program implementation. The 2018 Triangle Global Health Annual Conference will bring together global health leaders to address the significant ways that we can utilize innovative ideas to have a positive impact on the communities we serve. This year, our conference will address innovation from a broader and more comprehensive viewpoint.
The conference will showcase examples of innovation as well as a variety of definitions of “innovation”: Innovation can be a new idea, program, or more-effective device or process. Innovation can also be used to design, implement and evaluate more effective solutions.
Attendees and presenters will explore expanded notions of innovation that are inclusive of, but far broader than technology alone. Sessions will delve into various types of innovation including global health program innovation, medical technology, mHealth and innovative business models.
Organized by Tropical Health and Education Trust

International Migration is a global phenomenon that is growing in scope, complexity and impact. Human migration is now at an all-time high, accounting for 245 million persons and is shaping world events and fueling political and public debates. Forced migration, driven primarily by conflicts, social injustice and global inequities, is increasing and has resulted in a quarter of all international migrants who are refugees, asylum seekers or internally displaced persons many with health disparities. Migrant populations are heterogeneous and have a broad range of health needs — their presence raises several medical, ethical, economic, social and cultural issues for both migrants and receiving health systems.
The organizers are excited to partner with clinical, public health, and humanitarian organizations to organize a conference that will address the complex multidisciplinary health issues of this population.

Global Financing Facility
Replenishment Event, hosted by the Governments of Norway and
Burkina Faso, the World Bank, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Every year, more than 5 million women, children and adolescents die from mostly preventable conditions. This is in large part due to a US$33 billion annual health financing gap for women, children and adolescents.
The Global Financing Facility (GFF) in Support of Every Woman Every Child is a new approach to sustainable health financing that is transforming how countries finance and invest in the health of their people.
The replenishment conference will bring together leaders from countries, partners, civil society and the private sector, all of whom are committed to prioritizing the health and nutrition of those who need them most.
The replenishment of the GFF Trust Fund will enable the GFF to expand to 50 countries with the greatest needs – saving millions of lives by 2030 and helping all countries on their paths to building sustainably financed health systems.

The 14th Annual Academic Surgical Congress (ASC) will take place February 5 - 7, 2019, at the Hilton Americas-Houston in Houston, Texas. Each year, our meeting experiences tremendous growth and the quality of the science tops itself. Last year, we again had an incredible number of abstract submissions and attendance. Our continued growth and success depends on you!
The ASC is an exciting venue to hear and discuss the latest scientific advances in all disciplines of academic surgery, and the quality of the meeting depends on the submission of your best work. The breadth of work being presented includes topics in education, clinical outcomes, health services research, as well as basic and translational science. We are actively working to again provide a strong program, which will be engaging and exciting from start to finish.
The ASC, which is jointly sponsored by the Association for Academic Surgery and the Society of University Surgeons, will begin accepting electronic abstract submissions Monday, June 25. We will accept abstract submissions until the deadline on August 24, 2018. As in previous years, abstracts will be considered for presentation in full or quickshot oral format. Full oral talks will consist of an 8-minute presentation followed by 4-minutes of discussion. The quick shot talks consist of a 3-minute oral presentation, 5 slides maximum, and 2 minutes of discussion. We will also continue to showcase the top abstracts submitted to the meeting in plenary sessions dedicated to basic science, clinical/outcomes, and education.
Given our record-breaking abstract submission numbers over the past few years-and in order to maximize the number of participants in the ASC - we will continue to limit the number of abstracts that an individual first author may present to TWO presentations. There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted, and if more than two abstracts are accepted the two highest scoring abstracts will be selected for presentation. Please note that there is no limit on the number of abstracts in which an author may be included as a middle or senior author.
Abstracts accepted for presentation at the ASC are eligible for full manuscript submission to the Journal of Surgical Research (AAS) and Surgery (SUS). To be considered for AAS Awards, manuscripts must be submitted to the Journal of Surgical Research (JSR) by December 7, 2018. Otherwise, manuscripts may be submitted to Surgery by January 21, 2019 or to the Journal of Surgical Research by March 1, 2019 for special meeting related consideration.

The G4 Empowerment Database: An Interactive Surgical Platform to Connect Health Workers, Organizations, and Patients
Join us for an exclusive sneak preview of the G4 Alliance Empowerment Database, an interactive platform designed to connect health workers, organizations, and patients in order to bring safe surgery to those who need it most!
Over the past several years, interest in the field of global surgery has been growing, leading to increased medical, academic and political prioritization of this issue. Collaboration of surgical stakeholders represents an important strategy to effectively support surgical systems strengthening, capacity building and workforce training. However, effective coordination of international partners has represented a challenge from many non-profits, professional societies, medical missions and academic institutions. The resulting gaps and redundancies in coordination of healthcare delivery do not foster the needed sustainability required to empower local systems. The result is that opportunities and valuable human and material resources may be wasted and global healthcare not optimized.
This is the challenge that International College of Surgeons (ICS) and their partner organizations are seeking to address with The G4 Alliance Empowerment Database: A Single Open-Source Registry of Available Surgery Resources. The registry is designed to overcome human resource barriers by creating a central, global registry of all medical professionals and stakeholders working to support surgical care delivery around the world.
This innovative project was selected to receive the 2017 G4 Alliance Collaboration Prize, a $40K grant sponsored by the Henry Family Advised Fund to advance global surgery and increase collaboration among implementing organizations and practitioners.
This Webinar will feature presentations from the ICS and IntraHealth, as well as an interactive Q & A exchange. We hope you will join us and participate!

Organized by the National Academy of Medicine
The National Academies’ Forum on Public-Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety (PPP Forum) is convening 1.5-day public workshop (beginning at 1:00 PM EDT on June 13) to examine the economic and programmatic transitions that are changing the global health landscape profoundly and to explore innovative models and their potential as sustainable solutions in the transition context. A cohort of countries that have historically relied on development assistance for health (DAH) is transitioning into higher-income status. At the same time, countries that have provided DAH are shifting focus away from traditional development assistance in favor of investments focused on value for money and global public goods. Additionally, one large program focused on disease eradication is nearing its goal and will soon end. In response, processes are underway to transition countries out of traditional bilateral and multilateral health funding mechanisms, and countries are expected to spend more of their own resources on health systems. These transition processes are often well-defined in criteria and approach; however, their implications, particularly when they occur simultanously, are not well understood. This changing landscape requires the global health community to develop innovative, coordinated, and sustainable solutions to support countries and maintain health gains during and after transitions.

According to the United Nations, the protracted nature of humanitarian action is the new normal. Crises around the world have forced 65 million people from their homes, with displacement lasting 17 years on average. Populations in a perpetual state of emergency are signifanctly more prone to infectious disease and other serious but preventable health complications. With millions of mothers, children, and babies at risk, we need to take action. Real and lasting change will only endure when we all work together, coordinating and collaborating to scale effective solutions that bridge the humanitarian-development divide in health.
CORE Group is the unifying body to make that happen.
The June 2018 Global Health Practitioner Conference will be the first global gathering of humanitarian and development actors to prioritize evidence and lessons learned as we work toward collective community health outcomes.
Fighting HIV by Empowering Adolescent Girls and Young Women: A Learning Event on Pepfar’s Dreams Partnership
Three years ago, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) launched the DREAMS partnership, an ambitious and innovative effort to reduce HIV infection rates among adolescent girls and young women in ten sub-Saharan Africa countries, followed by support for DREAMS activities in five additional countries last year. This large-scale collaboration between PEPFAR, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Girl Effect, Johnson & Johnson, Gilead Sciences, and ViiV Healthcare aims to empower girls and women through rigorous, evidence-based methods that both improve healthcare services and address structural factors that contribute to HIV risk.
Center for Global Development and the Population Council are hosting a deep-dive discussion on lessons learned from DREAMS program operations on the ground and emerging results of research into this work, with a focus on implementation science and impact evaluation. Two expert panels will draw out the preliminary implications for future policy and programming around HIV and adolescent girls and young women.
