The Global Health Metrics & Evaluation (GHME) conference brings together all the disciplines involved in global health measurement and evaluation with the goal of sharing innovative tools and methods to promote a better understanding of the possible approaches to population health measurement. In recognition of the importance of transparency in research, GHME encourages discussion and debate with the purpose of improving the latest tools, technology, and methods and their implementation in global health.

While some conferences are topic-related and others are discipline-related, GHME aims to bring together multiple disciplines to discuss the major challenges and innovations in measuring and evaluating the broad range of topics that make up population health. GHME is an opportunity for health researchers, policymakers, advocates, and donors to build a global network that continues beyond the conference.

The conference is hosted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, The Lancet, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, and the University of Melbourne School of Population and Global Health.
