World Health Assembly
Amidst the ongoing pandemic and other emergencies, the 75th World Health Assembly (WHA) will bring together heads of state, ministers of health, and other global health leaders in-person for the first time in three years to work toward stronger capacities and systems to ensure health and well-being for all.
This year’s WHA includes a packed agenda focused on a range of issues—from health emergencies preparedness and response to the rise of non-communicable diseases. Other items on the agenda include the pathway to polio eradication, prevention of obesity and harmful use of alcohol, building a stronger healthcare workforce, promotion of mental health, and progress toward Immunization Agenda 2030.
The agenda will also feature the election of the Director-General and an important conversation on how to strengthen the World Health Organization, including its financing.
In addition to the official agenda, Member States and non-state actors will host a wide range of convenings at various locations around Geneva and online. You can get the most up-to-date information over the course of the Assembly by following WHO and UN Foundation on social media (#WHA75).
The 75th World Health Assembly will include the Director-General’s report and a proposed resolution, tabled by Croatia and Ethiopia, to adopt the Working for Health Action Plan (2022-2030). Now is the time to set this important agenda in motion and engage Member States, partners, and regional and global health workforce initiatives on the coordinated actions that are needed to protect, safeguard, and invest in the health and care workforce. This in-person event will be held May 27, 18:30-21:00 CEST.
