The CIHLMU's Public Health annual symposium this year will share and discuss a selected health-related Sustainable Development Goals in the changing environment with the international speakers and audiences.

The symposium will be discussing challenges and opportunities around three health-related SDGs: zero hunger, good health and well-being, and climate action.   

Three moderated small-group discussions will invite the participants to actively involve to discuss and answer several questions regarding: 

  1. the opportunities for medical research in environmental and health;

Organiser

Center for International Health - CIHLMU

In 2009, the CIHLMU Center for International Health was selected as one of five Centers of Excellence for Development Cooperation (exceed) by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The Center was funded by this award for a five-year period. A subsequent application for the follow-up period 2015 to 2019 was successful. CIH-LMU aspires to meet health-related challenges through capacity building in training and research.

Within the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, four faculties and 12 departments were involved in the planning and founding process. They collaborate with more than 50 universities and ministries worldwide, including the World Health Organization and other stakeholders in the field of health.

Vision

CIHLMU - We Empower Health Professionals

Mission

CIHLMU aspires to meet health-related challenges through capacity building in training and research.

Aims

The aim of CIHLMU is to empower partner universities in developing countries to set their own higher education and research agendas based upon the local problems. These agendas should be integrated by the partner universities into a network of knowledge management. Finally, research results will be translated by the partners into policy to provide crucial information to stakeholders.
