CS17: CONCURRENT SESSION 
Innovative Mechanisms to Make Careers in Rural and Underserved Settings the Preferential Choice
Worldwide there is a lack of healthcare professionals who choose to practice primarily in rural and underserved areas, which leads to severe health worker shortages and low quality of care in some of these settings. Recently, a variety of organizations have developed models to expose and/or retain high quality healthcare workers in rural and underserved areas. The HEAL Initiative, Compañeros en Salud, SEED, and Africa Health Placements have developed innovative models with this goal. This panel will have representatives from these organizations discuss their model, successes and challenges, and share their vision for how to scale or replicate these models in a multitude of settings. The goal of this panel is to create a discussion of diverse voices to present pathways towards improving healthcare workforce.

The Power of Law and Judicial Institutions to Impact Public Health Around the World: Announcing the Findings of the Lancet - O'Neill Institute, Georgetown University Commission Findings on Global Health and the Law
This panel will present the findings of the Lancet – O’Neill Institute Commission on Global Health and the Law, which identifies law as an important, but often overlooked, determinant of health and safety. The Commissioners, international experts in health, policy, law, economics, and governance from international organizations, governments, academia, and civil society, have examined the complex interaction between health and law at the global, regional, and national levels. The Commission’s report, which will be published in 2018, aims to present compelling arguments that law is a powerful tool to advance global health and justice. The panel will present the Commission’s recommendations to achieve this goal, including on the role of law in establishing overarching normative guidance on global health and encouraging countries and international bodies to adopt laws that have demonstrated positive impacts on health.

Particular attention will be paid to lessons learned that can be generalizable to other areas of public health. Case studies from LMICs will be presented that include a global leadership course on road safety, a formal trauma and injury research training program, development and implementation of free online training programs, and developing institutional capacity for training, research, and practice.

CS20: CONCURRENT SESSION
Ethical Challenges in Clinical Global Health: Debating Skills and Scope of Practice
Through a structured debate, panelists from the fields of global health ethics will examine the ethical challenges present in direct patient care, short term field experiences, and research conducted by outsiders in resource constrained settings, particularly in those where there is not a critical shortage of health care workers. The panel will address the initial results from an ongoing survey study investigating the demographics and experiences of health care professionals and trainees practicing global health work in resource constrained settings. The discussion will also evaluate existing efforts to prepare volunteers for ethical challenges through predeparture training. Finally, the panel will propose alternative methods of engagement that mitigate neo colonialism, promote bidirectional educational exchange, and emphasize sustainable health care systems.

Building a Pandemic-Ready Workforce: Eight years of Lessons Learned on Strengthening the Global Workforce through University Networks
An effective One Health Workforce has the technical competencies to meet international standards, the multi-sectoral competencies to lead teams and foster coordination across ministries and the institutional support to use their skills optimally. Over the past 8 years One Health University Networks in Africa and Asia have built university-based programs that are training, a One Health Workforce to strengthen country capacity to prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease threats. This panel will review and discuss the successes and lessons from 8 years on the front lines of training a One Health workforce. Topics will include national one health workforce needs assessments and planning in 12 countries, knowledge gained on what competencies and training impact workforce effectiveness, and innovations in training programs and methods.

Toward Best Practices for Student Field Work in Global Health
This panel will explore strategies for effectively engaging public health students in international fieldwork during their training so that they both learn and contribute to their site’s agenda in a sustainable and meaningful way. Our focus is on practice experiences that address the structural determinants of health in a setting outside a student’s home country, which requires careful and intentional attention to a number of issues including orientation to the social and political context, some understanding of the social determinants of health in a given setting, and cultural awareness and humility. The panel will be relevant for educators and health professionals involved in developing, implementing, and supervising student fieldwork in diverse global settings.

CS27: CONCURRENT SESSION 
Challenges in Global Health and Aging: Examining the Double-Burden of Communicable and Non-Communicable Diseases in a Growing Population
Our rapidly aging global population poses new public health challenges. Changing demographics, as illustrated by China’s “4:2:1 demographic problem,” have created social and health issues that require creative solutions. These changing demographics have implications for health care, social support, and economics. Managing communicable diseases like HIV and coping with an upswing in non-communicable diseases such as hypertension and diabetes in the elderly requires awareness of some of the unique aspects of these diseases in this population. In much of Africa, HIV and AIDS has altered family structures, and the increased use of anti-retroviral treatment has allowed people to live longer lives with HIV. Finding effective, practical and safe treatments for elderly people with common chronic diseases requires new data and unique considerations and interventions.

CS28: CONCURRENT SESSION
Against the Current: Updates on the Migration Crisis in the Mediterranean
This panel will identify and evaluate health needs, disparities and solutions for migrant population in the Mediterranean Region, including CDs, NCDs and mental health.Migration does not, in itself, constitute a health risk. However, migrant populations have particular health needs, which may differ from those of native population and may not, therefore, be included in the health plans of the destination country. Migrants also have different customs and lifestyles, which may change as they adapt to a changing situation. Additionally, mental health is one of the most neglected areas in migrant populations. The challenge is to incorporate the health care needs of migrants into national health plans, policies and strategies, taking into account every individual’s basic human right to health and health care.
