"Handing over the MMI chair"
"Handing over the MMI chair"

Geneva, 20 May 2010. As in the previous years, the Annual Assembly of the Medicus Mundi International Network took place in Château de Bossey near Geneva. This year's General Assembly was a milestone in the development of our Network: The Assembly adopted a Network Strategy for the next five years. The presentation of the annual report, the election of the Board and of Nick Lorenz as new Chairperson (following Guus Eskens who had to step back having completed two terms: see photo) and the admission of two new members (Wemos foundation and Smile Train Italia) were other highlights of the meeting.

Looking back to Geneva Events

  • At the World Health Assembly, the MMI Network focused its joint activities on advocacy for the WHO code of practice on international recruitment of health personnel - which was finally adopted by the WHA! Medicus Mundi International prepared a statement to the Assembly and organized, on Tuesday 18 May 2010 and together with other civil society organizations, a WHA side event on the implementation and monitoring of the WHO code of practice on international recruitment of health personnel (see documentation).
  • The MMI Network was also a co-organizer of a civil society workshop on Global Health Governance (14-15 May 2010, see documentation).
