Sharing knowhow and joining forces towards Health for All

"We will build the future now, together." General Assembly of the MMI Network

"We will build the future now, together." General Assembly of the MMI Network

Geneva, 27 May 2017. The General Assembly of the MMI Network took place in the week of the 70th World Health Assembly (WHA), at the ICRC Museum in Geneva.

This well-established arrangement allowed Network members to link their participation in the MMI Assembly with attending the World Health Assembly as a member of the MMI delegation; on the other hand WHA delegates joined the MMI meeting as our guests.

Health Cooperation beyond aid
MMI public lunch event

With its side event to the MMI Assembly, the MMI working group on Effective Health Cooperation (MMI EHC) deepened the dialogue on how actors in development cooperation such as international NGOs or bilateral agencies can engage in a legitimate, relevant and effective way to achieving universal access to health (see MMI discussion paper, 2016).

A basic workshop documentation is available here.

The MMI Assembly and lunch event were completed by a networking dinner on Friday evening 26 May (Network members only) and in particular by a strong engagement of the MMI delegation (as an NGO in official relations with WHO) in the deliberations of the World Health Assembly and in formal and informal WHA side events.
