2014 Conference on Health and Humanitarian Logistics in Mexico City

Primary tabs

The Health and Humanitarian Logistics Conference, now in its sixth year, 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. Ideas will be shared around emerging themes such as market mechanisms for food assistance, the vaccination supply chain in global public health, infrastructure needs for coordination and collaboration and end-to-end supply chain strategy. You are welcome to email your ideas for panel themes, workshop topics, and potential speakers/facilitators to humlog2014@mit.edu, loghumanitaria.csf@servicios.itesm.mx or humlogconf@gatech.edu.

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.

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.
