Educating Health Workers for Peace International Symposium

Category:
October 29, 2010

An international symposium enhancing training and research on peace and conflict issues in the health sector.
On June 13-15th, 2007, an international symposium will focus on the peace potential of medical and health science institutions.
The conference will take place at the northernmost university of the world, the University of Tromsø, Norway.

Despite of a growing number of pilot courses in Peace-through-Health, Violence
Prevention, Global Health, or Health and Human Rights, still many challenges remain
in the effort to create awareness of and strengthen the peace capacities of health
professionals.

The symposium will therefore be another step towards peace mainstreaming in medical
training and research.

Keynote speakers:
Ole Danbolt Mjøs, Luc Reychler, Joanna Santa Barbara, John S. Yudkin and more.

Prior to the symposium the Center for International Health hosts a partner workshop
of the European Medical Peace Work Project (June 11-13).

This project is developing an online course, textbook and resource website for improving the training
possibilities for health professionals in peace issues.

Please help us with the collection of existing courses and teaching material for
health workers, related to issues of peace, violence, conflict, human rights, human
security, or sustainable development. Your courses can be registered at
www.medicalpeacework.org
