Georgia Tech Global Learning Center, 84 5th St. NW - Atlanta, GA 30308-1031

Humanitarian Response Lab co-hosts Health and Humanitarian Logistics Conference. The aim of the annual Conference is to provide an open forum to discuss the challenges and new solutions in disaster preparedness and response, long-term development and humanitarian aid, and global health delivery.

The conference platform encourages learning and collaboration within and across institutions; promote system-wide improvements in organizations and the sector as a whole; identify important research issues; and establish priorities for nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), corporations, and the government in terms of strategies, policies and investments. Representatives from the humanitarian sector, government and military, NGOs, foundations and private industry, and academia presented diverse perspectives in health and humanitarian challenges through keynote addresses, panel discussions, focused workshops, lunchtime group discussions, and interactive poster sessions (with over forty-five posters covering a broad set of research topics and applications).

For its eighth year, the conference will return to the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta, GA USA. The event is co-organized by Georgia Tech, INSEAD, MIT and Northeastern University. The mission of the conference series is to stimulate innovation and build capacity to manage global health and humanitarian supply chains around the world. It brings together high level speakers from across the health and humanitarian sectors, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), industry, government, etc.
