2nd Conference of the Eurasian Academic Alliance for Global Health

16-17 April 2024 the Eurasian Academic Alliance for Global Health is convening its 2nd international conference. The theme of the conference is Strengthening Health Workforce for Improving Health Security in the Eurasian Region. The conference offers online participation.

As the world becomes more globalized, so does health of its population. From the early 2000s Global Health has emerged as a rapidly growing academic discipline addressing the health issues and concerns, which transcend political boundaries of all countries and create a relationship of global, mutual interdependence. Global health focuses on health needs of the people of the whole planet, above the concerns of particular nations, and emphasizes the shared susceptibility to, experience of, and responsibility for health. Global health challenges require effective trans-national actions. As the COVID19 pandemic has revealed, cooperation on global health issues is important among all countries of the world. However, countries located in closer geographic proximity require particularly well-developed collaboration mechanisms since they are more tightly linked by the external factors such as – tourism, trade, environment, climate, socio-cultural influence and others - that can catalyze the exacerbation of populations’ health. The Eurasian Academic Alliance for Global Health was established in 2021 with the support from the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme.
