67th World Health Assembly

67th World Health Assembly

Geneva, 19-24 May 2014. The agenda of this year's World Health Assembly was  again very long. You might consult the great WHO Watch website for an overview and analysis of key agenda items.

As an organization in official relations with WHO, the Medicus Mundi International Network was invited to appoint representatives to the World Health Assembly and to make statements under items concerning technical issues. The MMI Network focused its activities on networking and advocacy related to key MMI projects also represented in the Network's WHA delegation, mainly:

  • WHO watch
  • Democratising Global Health Coalition on the WHO reform (DGH)
  • Health workers for all and all for health workers (HW4All)
  • Health Workforce Advocacy Initiative and its working group on migration   

NGO statements including those of the MMI delegation are available for a limited period on the WHO website.
