Global Health Governance

Wednesday, 03.10.2012 | 15:00 - 18:00 | Congress Centre 2

Organised by Maastricht University and Global Health Europe

This forum will contribute to the global health governance discourse from an international- as well as European perspective. It will put forward the issues that need to be addressed through a common international approach, with the European Union and the WHO Regional Office for Europe as key actors for the European continent. The forum will achieve this by focusing on some of the multiple and complex issues that affect health and social well-being in a globalized context. In line with ongoing EU policy processes (e.g. Europe 2020, Horizon 2020 and the EU Council Conclusions on Global Health), this session will give impetus to the way forward for global health in the EU.
