A World Health Assembly in times of a dual crisis: Covid-19 and the collapse of multilateralism as we have known it

May 15 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Organized by Geneva Global Health Hub

RSVP

The civil society meeting on 15 May will allow members of the Geneva Global Health Hub and other civil society colleagues to share their views of the World Health Assembly in the current crisis of multilateralism that is accentuated by the Covid-19 pandemic. The discussion will be structured along with two (interrelated) thematic fields:

1. Looking ahead to WHA73: Can the World Health Assembly uphold its status as the most relevant forum to negotiate global public health particularly in a major global health crisis?

2. Beyond the World Health Assembly: How successfully is WHO defending and shaping its role as the “leading and coordinating global health authority”? Or is the Covid19 pandemic the last straw for this multilateral institution in the middle of a wider crisis of multilateralism?

Deadline for registration: Friday 15 May, 13.00 hrs CEST. Your registration will be confirmed within a working day (until Thursday 14 May) or within an hour (Friday, 15 May).
