The UNU International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) hosted a one-day forum on “Global Health Priorities: An Agenda for Malaysia” on 16 January 2018. Held at the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MiGHT) building at Cyberjaya, the event brought together research leaders in national research and academic institutions in Malaysia.
During the sessions, event attendees identified potential areas and challenges in global health, such as identifying interested institutions and leaders to develop a global health agenda, and exploring core areas for capacity building and developing innovative strategies for training.
An outcome of the forum was the establishment of a Malaysian Global Health Consortium as an informal partnership towards a shared programme of work in research and capacity building for the Global South.
