Convening people

The actors involved in global health are changing, and a multi-sectoral, cross-cutting approach is essential for tackling the priority issues.

We have extensive experience in bringing together thought leaders, policy makers, healthcare professionals and senior stakeholders from all sectors with an interest and mission for improving global health and global health security.

Our programme of events collectively attract more than 10,000 delegates annually from over 85 countries, including:

  • International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare – in partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in Boston, USA
  • BMJ Roundtable on Global Health Security – in partnership with Chatham House and Abt Associates
  • Sustainable Development Goals Think Tank Working Group – in partnership with the Graduate Institute for International Relations in Geneva.

BMJ wins Geneva Centre for Security Policy’s 2018 Prize for Innovation.

Mitali Wroczynski, Head of Strategic Partnerships, Global Health and Global Health Security; Dr Elisa Roma, Programmes and Partnerships Manager; and Amy Hilton, Head of Institutional Marketing at the award ceremony in Geneva.

Mitali says there is a need to look at the critical needs of healthcare systems worldwide beyond the identification and treatment of infectious diseases, and to also be mindful of non-communicable diseases.

It’s important to build resilient healthcare systems so that a workforce is capable of dealing with anything. When there is an outbreak, it’s also about maintaining the healthcare system where the outbreak is happening."

The BMJ

Mitali Wroczynski works closely with ministries of health, agriculture, and defence to influence policy decision-making, and develop new global health partnerships.

She pioneered BMJ’s clinical decision support training initiative that supports healthcare professionals working in low and middle-income countries to improve the detection, diagnosis, and management of infectious diseases and contributes to building health system resilience. Mitali has also played a key role in making risk communication a central issue for managing major infectious disease outbreaks, epidemics or pandemics, as part of the EU-funded programme, TELL ME.
