Symposium “Exploring Global Health in the Arctic”

Tromsø 22 – 23 January 2018

Centre for Arctic and Global Health, UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, in collaboration with People’s Health Movement Scandinavia and Norwegian Forum for Global Health Research, has the pleasure of inviting you to the symposium “Exploring Global Health in the Arctic”. 

The symposium aims to advance the value of solidarity upon which the University of Tromsø is based. We hope to spur national debate in the field by discussing global health initiatives springing out of Tromsø’s academic and professional community, and the aspect of solidarity in responses to global health challenges driven by conflict, migration and neoliberal practices across the world.

 

We are very pleased to confirm that two distinguished guest speakers graciously have offered to give their input to the debate (see short bios further down):

  • Dr. Paul Farmer, who will discuss the tension between human rights approaches and commercialization of health
  • Dr. Nils Daulaire, who will discuss options for Norwegian global health support in policy and practice in the light of USA’s change of course as an influential global health actor

 

 The programme further includes presentations and debates under the following headlines:

  • Solidarity in health – “Folk-til-folk” (People-to-people) collaboration in practice in north and south
  • Social movements: Successful mechanisms to stop austerity measures in healthcare services
  • Migrants and indigenous people: minority health care and structural challenges

 

The full symposium programme will be issued early December 2017, but you are already invited to register for the event. Continue to registration here.

 

Please note that hotel rooms should be booked early due to other events scheduled in Tromsø in January (Arctic Frontiers and Tromsø International Film Festival).

 

The symposium starts at lunch time Monday 22 January.

More information will soon follow.
