Conferences and symposiums Convergence on Global Health - Joint action with reference to the new EU Global Health Strategy
A half-day seminar organized by Karolinska Institutet in the context of the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the EU in dialogue with the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
The aim is to discuss the changing role of the EU as a global health actor with the aim to contribute to a European convergence on global health action with the new EU Global Health Strategy as a basis.
Having an open and constructive dialogue between academia, civil society organizations (CSO), policy makers and other important stakeholders is decisive. The different roles of different sectors come with different responsibilities but also with different possibilities. While EU Council conclusions, on one hand, currently are drafted based on the new strategy, universities, and CSOs have important roles as advocates and implementers of the strategy. The engagement of universities and CSOs in global health transcend through political terms of office and presidencies of the Council of the EU and form a seedbed for sustainability
The seminar will take place on Thursday the 9th of February, for invited guests in Nobel Forum, the building of the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
It will be possible to follow the seminar online, more information will follow shortly.
