Global Public Health Convention


The Global Public Health Convention is a research and advocacy initiative that resulted in the publication of A Global Public Health Convention for the 21st Century in the Lancet Public Health Journal, and in a partnership with The Panel for a Global Public Health Convention.This initiative was founded in 2020 in response to the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic with the aim of bridging critical gaps in the global public health architecture and policy framework by connecting research and advocacy. The study was conducted by the University of Miami under the leadership of Professor José Szapocznik Ph.D., with the support of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. After the research team gathered and analyzed input from 29 public health thought leaders, it distilled this information into a list of 10 recommendations on what must be done to reform the global public health system to avoid another disastrous pandemic.
