Since its first edition, the Geneva Health Forum (GHF) has become a space for dialogue and major exchanges between field practitioners, the university hospitals, the public and private sectors, international organizations and non-governmental organizations.
In 2016, several sessions of the GHF were designed in collaboration with the World Health Summit and the M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centers, Universities and National Academies. Faithful to the GHF spirit, the WHS Geneva Meeting offered the opportunity to have an open and constructive debate on innovation in healthcare.
All the sessions were simultaneously translated in French and English.

The “Market Place” Exhibition Space
The exhibition space of the Geneva Health Forum provided the opportunity for exchange after the discussions. On the ground floor, a temporary hospital was built around a red wire focusing on the theme of affordable and sustainable innovation for the hospitals of the future.
Geneva, the host city of the Geneva Health Forum, is the flagship city in terms of health, with a concentration of expertise on health issues, thanks to the presence of international organisations such as WHO or CICR, but also of NGOs, industry associations and Permanent Missions to the United Nations. Important Swiss public institutions engaged in global health are our partners and hosts.
