Forum 2012

Forum 2012 is the 14th global meeting of the Global Forum for Health Research and is a service of the COHRED Group, which resulted from the merger of the Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED) and the Global Forum for Health Research.

Hosted under the theme ‘Beyond Aid Research and Innovation as Key Drivers for Health, Equity and Development’, Forum 2012 will be held from 24-26 April 2012 in Cape Town.

The event will be the beginning of an exciting new series of the well-known and respected Global Forum for Health Research meetings. COHRED and the Global Forum for Health Research will focus on potentials, solutions, and developing capacities - specifically in low- and middle-income countries and emerging economies – and how global collaboration can leverage this for a new era of global development support.

Forum 2012 will bring together seven key constituencies:

  • Governments;
  • Research institutions;
  • Business;
  • Social enterprises / CSOs;
  • International organisations;
  • Funders; and
  • Media.
The Forum will serve as a platform to bring together the world’s top change makers from both North and South to work together hand in hand through equal partnerships to effect change.
