As one of the University of Otago’s flagship research centres, the Otago Global Health Institute (OGHI)aims to work with partners in New Zealand and abroad to help find solutions together for pressing global health problems. The OGHI annual conference is an opportunity for researchers working across diverse disciplines in global health, to meet, discuss projects, and foster new collaborations.
