THE Universities Impact Forum: Health & Wellbeing

  • Date: 07 - 08 July 2021
  • Time: 14:30 - 17:30
  • Category: General events 
  • Location: Online

Health and wellbeing is a basic human right and a key indicator of sustainable development. Poor health threatens access to education and work, increases poverty, and limits personal and economic development.

In addition to being one of its main causes, health is also heavily impacted by poverty, as well as by other aspects strongly linked to sustainability and development.

At the inaugural THE University Impact Forum: Health & Wellbeing, leaders and subject experts from higher education institutions will convene to share research, ideas and solutions to address and confront the key health conditions and diseases that impact on human outcomes around the world.
