The International Conference on Urban Health is considered to be the world’s premier international forum for information-exchange among urban health stakeholders and attracts delegates from across the world and from every kind of social, economical and ethnic background. The main objective of ICUH is to gather scientists, practitioners, policy makers and community organizations across disciplines and geographic boundaries from high and low income settings. It is hosted every other year by a select institution from around the globe and this year will be held for the first time on UK soil when it comes to Manchester in March 2014. The city’s rich and important history provides the perfect backdrop for such an esteemed event with the conference being held in the heart of the city centre. Delegates can expect plenary talks from some of the biggest and most influential names in urban health and other related fields, along with workshops and exhibits from organisations across the world of health and beyond.
The conference theme is “Crossing Boundaries: Partnerships for Global Urban Health”.
ICUH 2014 will be an integrated, trans-disciplinary conference, that the Manchester Urban Collaboration on Health will run collaboratively with the University of Manchester, the National Health Service’s Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) Global Health theme, the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI), the Global Urban Research Centre (GURC) and cities@manchester.
The conference will be split into a number of work streams. A global leader in each work stream will present to all delegates in a plenary lecture in the main hall. The parallel sessions will then be split into sessions related to each respective work stream, with a series of workshops, case studies, debates, Question and Answer sessions, and talks from successful applicants and other world-leaders within the work stream theme.
