AusWHO 2014 Conference

Date: March 28, 2014

Location: Alfred Centre, Prahran

The inaugural Australian World Health Organization Simulation (AusWHO) is an annual three-day conference in Melbourne where university students from all disciplines will tackle a global health issue as a representative of a United Nations member state, pharmaceutical company or non-governmental organisation. Over the weekend, delegates will collaborate to build resolutions during plenary and regional sessions, requiring negotiation, strategy and overarching cooperation.


AusWHO is part of a transnational project that aims to familiarise students with the processes of the World Health Organization by allowing them to play a first-hand role in creating global health policy. Join us for a thrilling weekend of intellectual discourse, new friends, and the chance to get up close and personal with one of the greatest global health issues facing us today.
