Program

The aim of the 10th annual Health & Humanitarian Logistics (HHL) Conference is to provide an open forum to discuss the challenges and new solutions in disaster preparedness and response, long-term development and humanitarian aid, and global health delivery. The conference platform encourages learning and collaboration within and across institutions; promotes system-wide improvements in organizations and the sector as a whole; identifies important research issues; and establishes priorities for nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), corporations, and the government in terms of strategies, policies and investments.

Representatives from the humanitarian sector, government, NGOs, foundations and private industry, and academia present diverse perspectives in health and humanitarian challenges through keynote addresses, panel discussions, focused workshops, lunchtime group discussions, and interactive poster sessions covering a broad set of research topics and applications.

This is the first time, the conference will be hosted in Dubai, a staple humanitarian hub, and it is sure to bring together an abundance of professionals active in the global health and humanitarian sectors from around the world. The event is co-organized by the Georgia Tech Center for Health & Humanitarian Systems (CHHS), NCSU, INSEAD Humanitarian Research Group, MIT Humanitarian Response Lab, Northeastern University, The International Association of Public Health Logisticians (IAPHL) and People that Deliver.

Available PDF VERSIONS of the keynote, panel sessions, presentations, workshops and posters are now available. Please access that material from the keynote & panelspresentations, workshops and posters pages.
