The Global Health Inspiration Day will include networking opportunities, panels and both in-depth and brief presentations on a broad range of global health topics. 

The event is designed for students, researchers and clinicians at the University of Oslo and the University hospitals with an interest in global health research –ranging from infectious diseases, digital health, migrant health, nutrition and health systems and policy, to public health history and anthropology.

Global Health Inspiration Day is a showcase for the research, training and outreach in global health undertaken across the University of Oslo. The goal of the Global Health Inspiration Day is to feature the rich diversity of the global health work being done within the different Signatory Themes across various departments at University of Oslo.

We are very proud to present Professor Till Bärnighausen as our special guest of honor. Professor Bärnighausen is Alexander von Humboldt University Professor and Director of the Institute of Public Health at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Heidelberg, Germany. He is also Adjunct Professor of Global Health at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health; Faculty Member at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies; and Senior Faculty at the Wellcome Trust's Africa Health Research Institute in South Africa. His research focuses on establishing the causal impact of global health interventions on population health, social and economic outcomes. In particular, he works on large-scale population health interventions for HIV, diabetes, hypertension, and vaccine-preventable diseases.
