The World Health Summit (WHS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) join forces to organize the world's leading international, inclusive and inter-sectoral global health conference that will set the agenda for a healthier future. The World Health Summit 2022 from October 16-18 is the first World Health Summit together with WHO and a kick-off: a joint summit will be taking place every three years from now on.
WHS 2022 is part of a long-term close collaboration, as WHO has been a strong strategic partner of the World Health Summit since its very beginnings. The aim of the joint World Health Summit 2022 is to create synergies and combine forces for global health development by engaging all relevant global health leaders and stakeholders from all sectors in all regions of the world. WHS 2022 strengthens exchange, stimulates innovative solutions to health challenges, fosters global health as a key political issue and promotes the global health debate in the spirit of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (Sustainable Development Goal 17 "Partnership for Goals").
Central Topics of the WHS 2022 are:
- Investment for Health and Well-Being
- Pandemic Preparedness
- Digital Transformation for Health
- Health is a Political Choice
- Strengthening Health Systems Resilience
