The International Geospatial Health Research Network (IGHRN) is a network of leading geospatial health scientists, policy makers, and practitioners from around the world that aims to explore new research frontiers in geospatial health research, to foster the formation of an international research communities to share knowledge and experience across borders and to bridge the gap between GIScience health research and the needs of health practitioners on the ground. It was founded in 2013 in an international forum jointly organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong and several other universities and organizations in the U.S. and Europe. In this session, panelists will summarize new trends in geospatial health research and share perspectives on structuring international networks that cross borders and generate new synergies. IGHRN objectives include the diffusion of geospatial health research and practice through its affiliate international organizations, and the development of advanced spatial analytics to address health issues ranging from environmental and social determinants of health to chronic, infectious, and biological disease and mental illness. The IGHRN will facilitate the sharing of geographic and geospatial health research and resources among global health institutes to address diseases and improve health outcomes.
