Oxford Global Health Conference 27 - 18 June 2022

From Crisis to Wellbeing: Recognizing the power and potential of global health ethics

The Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference takes place every two years. It aims to foster comprehensive multi-disciplinary debate and addresses critically important ethical issues in the conception and implementation of Global Health. #OGHBConf

Dates and venue for 2022

  • The conference will take place on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 June 2022
  • The venue will be Keble College, Oxford. Selected conference sessions will also be available online.


The conference will focus on advancing knowledge and capacity in global health ethics, exploring societal wellbeing and unity at the heart of global health ethics.

It invites innovations in thinking and doing to illuminate a wide range of global ethics challenges and opportunities. We encourage contributions that challenge current methods, structures and systems to achieve positive individual, societal and professional outcomes.

The 2022 conference programme will seek to identify perspectives and capabilities that are both seen and unseen, and ask what we can learn from our recent and distant past to guide our future. It will include keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, and a Dragon’s Den round, as well as many opportunities for networking, an evening reception and a conference dinner.

Finally, the conference seeks to connect aspirational visions, evidence, and practical solutions – bringing together bioethicists, frontline researchers, health professionals, humanities scholars, policymakers, scientists, and others.

We look forward to welcoming you!
