You are invited to join the Interdisciplinary Global Heath Dialogue Series, which will be held at Bielefeld University in 2020 and consist of approximately eight events over the year.
The dialogue series aims to provide insights into a diverse range of contemporary topics and challenges related to global health. In doing so, the series aims to strengthen understanding of and interest in the global health landscape and to foster interdisciplinary and interprofessional exchange amongst researchers and other actors about global health research, policy and practice.
Esteemed international and German global health experts will speak at Bielefeld University as part of the dialogue series.
The series is being organised by the Department of Population Medicine and Health Services Research (AG 2) in the School of Public Health, in coordination with other teams and faculties from across the university and with financial support provided by the Rectorate. For further information, please contact Ms. Victoria Saint.
Dr. Xenia Scheil-Adlung (Vice President, Health Law Institute, Geneva and UN Representative, International Federation on Ageing, Geneva) will speak on:
The neglect of older persons‘ needs in global health policies: The case of long-term care
The lecture highlights the case of long term care to demonstrate the impact of neglecting older persons’ needs in global
health policies. It discusses barriers in access to care experienced by older populations in all regions of the world including in Europe, e. g. the lack of rights, funding and well trained personnel in the context of global health policy principles. The lecture concludes with policy suggestions underscoring the necessity to address age discrimination in global health.
We look forward to a stimulating discussion and cordially invite you to attend the event! Please visit the website of the IGH Dialogue Series for further information on all high profile speakers and topics in 2020: https://www.uni-bielefeld.de/gesundhw/ag2/dialogue-series.html
