Irish Global Health Network Conference 2022 – Humanity and Health: Global Imbalance and Social Inclusion

June 15, 2022

Irish Global Health Network Conference – Global Imbalance and Social Inclusion

Co-hosted with the HSE Global Health Programme

Sponsored by Irish Aid

26th – 27th October 2022







The Covid-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on health systems and economies across the world, reinforcing pre-existing inequities and systematic weaknesses, from marginalisation of the world’s most vulnerable, to failures in supply chains and national surveillance systems. Public health measures implemented in response to the pandemic varied widely across the global north and the global south, laying bare the worldwide imbalance in the distribution of health, social and economic risks. Global health has never been more relevant in people’s lives. As we enter a break in history, the opportunity is upon us to address the vulnerabilities of a system that failed to serve us all equally. To safeguard all populations and maintain global health security in the long term, we must do better.  


In this context, the Irish Global Health Network Conference 2022 will be convened under the theme Global Imbalance and Social Inclusion. 

About the conference 

The IGHN conference provides an ideal opportunity to engage NGOs, academics and other stakeholders in reflecting on the emergency response measures undertaken and profiling actions to strengthen health systems, and community-based activities for health.  Our theme of Global Imbalance and Social Inclusion is relevant to all stakeholders. 

This year, the HSE Global Health Programme will be the co-host.  

Venue and Format

The conference will take a hybrid format held over 2 days. Day 1 of the conference will be held in-person at Trinity College Dublin, while day 2 will be held online. Day 1 will also be live-streamed.

Attendees will have the option of attending in-person, online, or both.
