“Moving health cooperation beyond aid”. General Assembly of the MMI Network

“Moving health cooperation beyond aid”. General Assembly of the MMI Network

Geneva, 26 May 2018, 9.30-11.15 hrs. The Annual General Assembly of the Medicus Mundi International Network will take place again in the middle of “International Geneva”, close to the Palais des Nations where the 71st World Health Assembly (WHA) will meet in the same week. This well-established arrangement will allow Network members to link their participation in the MMI Assembly with attending the WHA as a member of the MMI delegation; on the other hand WHA delegates, partners and all others interested are invited to join us as our guests.

For once (and hopefully not for the last time) our Assembly and side event will be hosted by the Global Health Centre of the Graduate Institute at their Maison de la Paix, one of “the” places where people meet for WHA side events.

As in every year, our Assembly will be the moment to discuss with our members and partners the achievements of the MMI Network in the past year and to look out into our future. We can do this with confidence, at least regarding our strategy, activities and working groups. With the Network strategy 2016-20, we still have a convincing plan, and we are happy to see many Network members strongly engaged in its implementation.

The draft agenda and schedule for the Assembly is available here. The full documentation and a manual for participants will be available on 14 May latest and sent to all Network key contacts and registered Assembly participants. The Assembly will be followed by a sandwich lunch.

The public lunch event "#AidToo: Sexual exploitation in international cooperation" (12.30-14.30 hrs) organized in cooperation with the Global Health Centre will probably find quite a bit of attention. We appreciate the engagement of Cordaid, the Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp and Medicus Mundi Switzerland in the preparation of the workshop.

The week of the 71st World Health Assembly will be again an important and extremely busy one for the MMI Network and its working groups and hosted projects. So watch this space and the MMI tweets for an overview and updates!
