Peking University Global Health and Development Forum
Health is the fundamental goal pursued by human beings, and it is an indispensable human capital for human beings to create economic wealth; various burdens brought about by health problems are important factors hindering economic and social development. At the same time, development helps to improve the social determinants of health and promotes health through resource security; however, the problems brought about by development can also affect the social determinants of health, thereby hindering the acquisition of health. The intertwined relationship between health and development is the primary issue faced by all human beings across national borders.
Since its inauguration in Dec. 22, 2020, Peking University Institute for Global Health and Development has held the "Peking University Global Health and Development Forum" every year, inviting leading experts in academia, research, policy making and industry at home and abroad to share and discuss academic research and policy practices, explore the new models of disease prevention and Control, health services and health management, exchange ideas on addressing challenges brought about by diseases, climate and environmental changes, and promote the reform of global health governance system and health diplomacy.
