Two Weeks After: The UNGA and its HLMs - What next?

Organised by the Global Health Centre

Webinar

Online

The United Nations General Assembly is a political forum and at this year's 73rd session health was high on the agenda, characterised by three high-level meetings: the first ever on tuberculosis, the third already on NCDs, and one to be held in 2019 on UHC. So, is it a positive trend to have health integrated in the UNGA? What was achieved and where do we still have gaps? How can we ensure implementation of the political commitments? What are the next steps to take?

Listen to the reflections of Professor Ilona Kickbusch, Director of the Global Health Centre, the Graduate Institute, ask your questions and engage in a debate online.

Professor Ilona Kickbusch is the Director of the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute and is a member of the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board and the WHO High-Level Independent Commission on NCDs and is co-chair of UHC 2030. She has had a distinguished career at the World Health Organization and continues to advise governments on their global health strategies. Her research interest is in the political determinants of health, health in all policies and global health.
