We are excited to welcome you virtually to the Institutionalizing Community Health Conference 2021, taking place from 19 – 22 April 2021.

UNICEF in collaboration with USAID, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Community Health Roadmap, and the Community Health Community of Practice (CH-CoP) convene a second ICHC to take stock of and build on experiences and knowledge since ICHC 2017. This includes lessons emerging from the implementation of key initiatives/partnerships including the Integrating Community Health Collaboration and the Intelligent Community Health Systems alongside learnings drawn from major convening in recent years (from the Global PHC conference in Astana, to the High Level Meeting on Universal Health Care, to the institutionalizing iCCM in Addis, to the Global Pneumonia Forum, and the World Health Assembly’s resolution on CHWs).

ICHC 2021 aims at renewing global commitment to a decade of accelerating primary health care through community health to achieve the SDGs, drawing from the opportunities and lessons learned from the COVID-19 response, whilst taking stock of country progress in institutionalizing community health to galvanize increased coordinated investments and joint actions. The conference is an opportunity to share progress, reforms and facilitate country action on urgent priorities for PHC at community level.

Registration is now open, and we are accepting submissions to the ICHC Marketplace. Thank you colleagues and we look forward to seeing you at the conference very soon…more
