Short description

Date & time


Organised session

A game of power and privilege in global health: can you walk the walk and talk the talk? Thematic Working Group Emerging Voices

This session will help deconstruct and understand the concept of ‘decolonizing’ global health from HSG participants’ lived experiences. In this facilitated session, participants will engage in a ‘power walk’ followed by a semi-guided discussion to generate information on this recent intense topic of discussion. It is hoped that this session will also expose the diverse participants to the realities of knowledge generation, funding, dissemination and most importantly the ultimate output of health policy and systems research – strengthening health systems.
