The full agenda details are available on the virtual platform. Once you register, you will be able to log in to the virtual platform to browse sessions, speakers, and participants and save sessions to your personal ‘My Events’ section. Visit the Agenda page for further details on the daily schedule. All sessions will be fully virtual. While we encourage participants to attend sessions live to take advantage of networking and engagement features, all sessions will be recorded for participants to watch at a later time.

The GHTechX agenda includes a variety of sessions highlighting innovative topics and cutting-edge content. You can expect to see a mixture of featured plenary sessions (e.g. keynote speakers, career panels), networking sessions, and concurrent technical sessions (panels, presentations, and workshops).

Plenary and Featured sessions include:

  • Featured conversations with inspiring leaders in global health
  • Career panels
  • In-depth sessions on advocacy, monitoring and evaluation, and the global health journal process
  • Open networking sessions.

Technical sessions include sessions spanning the following tracks:

  • COVID-19
  • Cross-Cutting Issues
  • Cross-Sectoral Engagement
  • Environmental Health
  • Family Planning and Reproductive Health
  • Global Health Security
  • Health Systems
  • HIV & AIDS
  • Humanitarian Relief
  • Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health
  • Noncommunicable Disease and Injury
  • Nutrition
  • Other Infectious Disease


While a virtual forum feels different than gathering at the GW Marvin Center, an in-person event is not possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. The shift to a multi-day, online event also served to support the participation of even more attendees and voices in global health.

The organizing committee has worked to design a new, digital format to expand participation while maintaining the cutting-edge technical updates, energizing environment, and global health knowledge exchange that are integral to the event.
