A Critical Shift to Chronic Conditions : Learning from the Frontliners
Geneva Health Forum organizes its fourth edition from 18 – 20 April 2012, to be held in the International Conference Centre in Geneva, Switzerland.
Theme of the conference is chronic conditions, which covers the entire range of conditions such as cancer, HIV/Aids, TB, Hepatitis, cardio-vascular diseases, etc. Chronic conditions pose major challenges to health systems in high and low-incomes countries, in stable or emergency situations.
