Dear Friends of Global Health:

A team of 30 students from across the University schools and departments have organized a conference around powerful topics in the margins of most discussions in global health — a deeper understanding of social and political movements, diverse sexualities and sexual health, gender-based violence, reproductive rights, global discrimination against the LGBTQ community, income inequality, and universal access to health care. With over 20 sponsors, and an additional 11 co-sponsors, the conference will feature perspectives from multiple disciplines, cultures and communities. The Western Regional Health Conference is for anyone interested in deepening their knowledge base about global health, and the impact of movements to improve health globally!

The keynote speaker is Stella Nyanzi, PhD, with the Makerere Institute of Social Research at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Her current research is focused on the politicization of sexuality in contemporary Uganda – with an emphasis particularly on unpacking mainstream religious framing of and contestations about sexual citizenship. Dr. Nyanzi is also conducting research about the vulnerability and resilience of young refugee and displaced women in Uganda towards HIV/AIDS. She is a featured author in the book, African Sexualities, which features many scholars from Sub-Saharan Africa.
