Background Information

CORE Group convenes hundreds of global health professionals through its annual Global Health Practitioner Conferences to share knowledge, evidence and best practices in order to increase the impact of global health programs and policies on communities around the world.

CORE Group's Regional Global Health Practitioner Conference in Nairobi, Kenya aims to:
  • LEVERAGE community voices and experiences of frontline health workers, community health workers, community nurses, and other service delivery providers to help identify the kinds and levels of services needed.
  • LINK individuals, organizations, governments, United Nations, donors, private sector, and many other key players both inside and outside the community towards addressing social determinants of health and ensuring everyone works together for improved health outcomes and breaking down silos.
  • LEARN about best practices and approaches in community health within national and local health systems, as well as consortium building and technical capacity building with strategic focus for improved community health.
The Conference will focus on:
  • Enabling stakeholders to share progress and identify solutions to persistent community health challenges;
  • Strengthen the role of community health workers in line with the Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage;
  • Inform global, national and local policies and plans though evidence, success, and adaptive learning
Concurrent sessions offer an opportunity to bring together diverse professionals, experiences, and perspectives; examine new research, evidence, strategies, and practices; and engage with peers on emerging issues or opportunities. Organizing a 90-minute concurrent session is a rewarding experience, with support of CORE Group Staff.
A Technical Review Committee, supported by Working Group leadership, will review and approve session proposals. Approved submissions will ensure a diversity of topics and panelists that will collectively enhance participants’ Global Health Practitioner Conference experience.
