4th Rhodes Healthcare Forum

4th Rhodes Healthcare Forum

The world has seen remarkable gains over the last two decades. Polio has been eradicated, child mortality has halved and HIV is becoming a chronic disease. While there is still more to be done, global priorities are now shifting from solely preventing mortality to improving health for all. Acknowledging the complexity of health systems, this year’s conference will bring together clinicians, researchers, and advocacy workers to explore how we can maximise the gains we have made in mortality and optimise health for all.
