The Health and Humanitarian Logistics Conference draws practitioners from private industry, NGOs, government, military, and academia, focusing on topics such as planning, preparing and responding to disasters, recovery and mitigation, and addressing major societal problems relating to health and humanitarian response.

The conference program features plenary panels and interactive educational workshops to encourage discourse among participants, innovative research poster sessions, and ample time for networking, facility tours, and other activities. Last year’s conference, held in Kuala Lumpur, drew participants from 25 countries from organizations such as Aidmatrix, CARE, the Salvation Army and The UN World Food Programme to Bader-Gateway, GlaxoSmithKline, Nanyang Technological University and USAID.  Panel speakers and workshop facilitators in previous years have included leaders from The International Federation of the Red Cross/Red Crescent, Doctors Without Borders, John Snow Inc., Partners in Health, the World Bank and the World Health Organization.

A formal invitation with information about this year’s Conference in Mexico City- the program, accommodations, poster submissions and registration procedure- will be provided at a later date on the conference website: http://www.scl.gatech.edu/humlog2014/. Please e-mail any ideas for panel themes, workshop topics and potential speakers/facilitators to humlogconf@gatech.edu or humlogconf@mit.edu or loghumanitaria.csf@servicios.itesm.mx.

This year’s conference has again been made possible by the generous support of the UPS Foundation and Georgia Tech. If your organization would like to co-sponsor the 2014 Health and Humanitarian Logistics Conference, please contact the conference organizers at one of the above email addresses.
