The 16th annual Global Health Mini-University (Mini-U) will take place on September 14, 2017. Mini-U is a day-long learning forum that offers innovative sessions highlighting evidence-based best practices and state-of-the-art information.

There are 64 technical sessions covering ten different area topics on global health: environmental health, family planning and reproductive health, global health security, health systems, HIV/AIDS, humanitarian relief, infectious disease, maternal, neonatal and child health, non communicable disease and injury and nutrition.

Mini-U provides an opportunity for individuals from varied backgrounds to interact with global health professionals. In past years, attendees included students, medical professionals, public health experts, NGOs, US government staff, non-profits and other parties interested in global health.

Mini-U is hosted by the USAID Bureau for Global Health and the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health.
