In the context of our Catalyst Dialogues, Hub Communities and other formats, we regularly produce publications with concrete recommendations. What makes these publications special is the involvement of multiple actor groups in the process of their creation, allowing us to leverage diverse expertise and present a variety of perspectives.
As a Global Health Hub, we believe that the challenges in global health can only be addressed through collaboration among all actor groups and sectors. Therefore, in cooperation with Healthy DEvelopments, we organized four Catalyst Dialogues on current issues in global health, featuring renowned experts from different actor groups. The topics included "Global Health Architecture" and "Climate and Health" in 2022 as well as "Global Health Financing" and "Digital Transformation for Improved Healthcare" in 2023. We compile the perspectives and arguments of the experts into policy briefs, providing specific recommendations for policymakers. Our cross-sectoral approach in these briefs offers a unique opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of complex subject matter and learn about the diverse positions of various actor groups.
Policy Brief Health and Climate
Policy Brief Global Health Architecture
Policy Brief Global Health Financing
Policy Brief Digital Health Data Governance
Our 12 Hub Communities also continuously work on solutions to pressing global health questions, publishing their positions and recommendations. Members of the Hub communities collaborate equally on self-selected topics in which they aim to drive change. This collaboration occurs partly in person but mostly virtually through the Collaboration Space.

Community Paper on Urban Health
Community Paper on Covid-19 and Mental Health
Community Paper on the EWARS Framework
In 2022 alone, we hosted over 20 webinars and in-person events on relevant global health topics. Afterwards, we summarize the key insights for our members, interested individuals, and policymakers.

What happens to the publications?
The Hub management team ensures that the findings are communicated to policymakers. They are presented to and discussed with representatives of the political sphere, allowing them to influence political debates and decision-making processes. Additionally, the management team ensures the visibility of the results in the Global Health community, including traditional media outlets such as Deutsches Ärzteblatt or Tagesspiegel Background, as well as social media platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter.
