    We are excited to invite you to apply for the 6th annual Global Health and Leadership Conference, hosted by Harvard College VISION: Global Health Society and the Harvard Global Health Institute, on the weekend of April 23-24th, 2022. The mission of our Conference is to inspire interest in global health and empower high school students to serve as the next generation of civically-minded leaders. 

    This year’s conference theme is NGOs and Global Health Delivery Systems, with a focus on issues, including, but not limited to the role of NGOs in international health research, resource mobilization during crises, and equity in healthcare financing and delivery. 

    Amidst the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we aim to make this conference accessible to high school students of all backgrounds and nationalities. As such, we are currently planning to hold the conference in a hybrid format with both Zoom and in-person options available for attendance. The in-person component of the conference remains tentative due to evolving public health and university guidelines. We encourage all students to apply for the conference–no prior global health experience is required. The application is simply intended to gauge interest and curiosity in global health and leadership development.  

    The Conference’s speaker series will highlight leading health experts across diverse disciplines. Past conference speakers have included Dr. Vivek Murthy, Surgeon General of the United States under both President Obama and President Biden, Dr. Michael Osterholm, the Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and member of President Biden's COVID-19 Advisory Board, Dr. Paul Farmer, Chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School and co-founder of Partners in Health (PIH), and Dr. Louise Ivers, Executive Director of the Center for Global Health at Massachusetts General Hospital . The Conference will also feature global health workshops hosted by student organizations at Harvard University such as Partners in Health Engage, UNICEF and Global Alliances for Medical Innovation (GAMI).  

    If you are interested in applying, please fill out the application linked here. Conference fees will differ depending on how early you apply. For students interested in participating in our Community Pitch Competition, the deadline to apply is April 8th, 2022.
