Global Health Science and Practice Technical Exchange

The Global Health Science and Practice Technical Exchange (GHTechX) took place virtually from April 21 - 24, 2021. The event is curated through a partnership between USAID, the George Washington University, and the Global Health: Science and Practice Journal. Our goal is to convene speakers and technical sessions that highlight the latest and greatest in global health, with participants spanning global health experts, students, and professionals from across the global health community.
