Forum 2009: Innovating for the health of all, the 2009 annual meeting of the Global Forum for Health Research is composed of different types of sessions and activities. The multiplicity of types of "meeting opportunities" is deliberate and reflects the very nature of the Global Forum: catalytic, flexible, inclusive, bringing together many partners to contribute to all aspects of the discussion, a network of networks.

The choice of theme itself has and will affect programme of Forum 2009. In addition to traditional plenary sessions, which allow world visionaries to share their understanding of innovating for the health of all, we are planning different types of sessions – or un-sessions – so as to be as receptive as possible to the wealth of ideas from all parts of the world, all backgrounds and sectors; so as to facilitate exchange and networking that will last long beyond Forum 2009; and to collect and synthesize the knowledge shared into valuable take-home messages.

An outline of the Programme is available here (subject to change):
