Designing tomorrow's EU Global Health Strategy

Ideas from the public consultation process

Wednesday, 28 September 2022 | 17:00-18:30 | Kursaal

Organised by the European Commission Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE)

A new EU Global Health Strategy is being shaped as we speak, with a European Commission communication to be released before the end of 2022. The Strategy will steer the European community’s action points up until 2030 - a time of daunting health and geopolitical challenges. 

As the wide-reaching public consultation for the Strategy draws to a close, what are the key suggestions made by stakeholders in the EU and beyond, not least in the Global South? This interactive session provides participants with a unique opportunity to provide additional contributions for the development of the Strategy. The Commission’s DG SANTE Director General Sandra Gallina, and distinguished guests, will comment on the recommendations and input provided by a broad range of audience voices and stakeholders. 

How should the EU respond to the challenges at hand? What should the Strategy’s priorities be to extend across the whole health policy landscape? Where should the EU lead by example? How should EU policy shape the emerging new world health order?
