World Health Summit

Under the high patronage of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President François Hollande and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the World Health Summit (WHS) is the premiere international platform for exploring strategic developments and decisions in the area of healthcare. This coming 9-11 October, the 8th WHS will once again draw international experts from academia, politics, the private sector and civil society to the German Federal Foreign Office in Berlin. More than 1,500 stakeholders and decision-makers from all fields of the healthcare spectrum will focus on topics like: Migration and Refugee Health: From care to policy; Technological Innovation for Health: Improving healthcare delivery; Women, Empowerment and Health: Equality and agency; Translational Research: Advancing innovative treatment; and Infectious Diseases: Lessons learned from Ebola to Zika. The WHS is underpinned by the M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centres, Universities and National Academies – an international network of academic institutions known for their educational and research excellence.
