About the event:
This year’s World Health Summit 2021 in Berlin was filled again with interesting discussions and debates, giving global health actors a stage to come together and enhance projects, ideas and to urge the community to continue their efforts to make global health a topic mainstreamed everywhere.
Picking up on this spirit, the German Federal Ministry of Health has introduced a new format called “Policy Track” at the event. The idea was to strengthen policy perspectives on current issues regarding the global health governance in Germany but also on a global scale. This was to be done in a way that facilitated open, controversial, and in-depth debates, as to initiating compelling and engaging sessions.
Allowing for a deeper understanding of various perspectives on the most pressing global health challenges, this format enabled the unfolding of relevant ideas for policymaking and -makers. Since these ideas are planned to be incorporated into upcoming policy processes, the new format gave room for global health experts to help shape global health policies.
10 sessions were held in 3 days, of which 2 sessions were actively co-chaired by the Global Health HubGermany. We are more than happy with the fruitful discussions, the insights into current topics and the great participation of the audience, both virtually and on-site.
