Referring to Neil’s question about the above mentioned initiative of the German Federal Health Ministry (launched at the G20 Meeting in Hamburg in July 2017 – there has been a sort of constitutional event (Feb 19, 2019) in Bonn and there is a website prepared for the Global Health Hub Germany but still “under construction” (https://www.globalhealthhub.de/#2).
The idea is to create an interdisciplinary / intersectoral forum to effectively address global health challenges with initial focus on (i) tropical diseases, (ii) cancer (prevention / screening / treatment), and (iii) antimicrobial resistance (AMR) as well as digitalization in health. GIZ (www.giz.de) will manage the secretary of the Hub (info@GlobalHealthHub.de) and there will be events organized on the above topics with different formats: Global Health Talks, Working Groups, Webinars, and of course, an interactive website.
More information is to be launched and published soon – happy to keep you up-to-date.
