Young Gasteiners meet with WHO-EURO Chief Scientist & Representative to the EU Roberto Bertollini

On 15 January 2015, a group of ten Young Gasteiners came together at the WHO Office at the European Union in Brussels to meet with Roberto Bertollini, current Chief Scientist of WHO-EURO and Representative to the European Union. Organised by the fellow Young Gasteiner Sofia Ribeiro, the group talked informally about the future role and functioning of WHO in an ever more multipolar world.
After a short presentation of the Young Gastein Network and its role in each European Health Forum Gastein, as well as an overview of the activities which took place, the workshop proceeded with the intervention of Roberto Bertollini. We had an overview of the WHO history, with a focus on recent challenges such as the reform and the international health threats. Also we discussed the relations between WHO and the EU and respective challenges in their cooperation. The workshop ended with a question and answer session, covering WHO related issues and possibilities of employment within the organization.  After a very informative talk, the group of Young Gasteiners ended the evening the proper way – in a Belgian beer-café.
