Newsletter December 2019

Dear friends,

What a year it has been for global health, with more people and organizations than ever before devoting time and resources to making the world a healthier place. We know we can best achieve this by working together, and it's thrilling to see many partnerships established and strengthened over the past year. We are excited to welcome three new members to the M8 Alliance, to strengthen our collaboration with the WHO, and to welcome Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus as our fourth patron.

We have been heartened to see many leaders around the world making health—including the health of our planet—a priority. We saw this at the G7 summit, UN General Assembly, and of course at the World Health Summit, where Minister Spahn stated that global health will also be on the agenda of the German EU presidency.

We're looking forward to even more progress for a healthier future in the new year, including at April’s Regional Meeting in Kampala, the first to be held in Africa. Let us keep working together to improve health worldwide, putting health on the agenda in all policy areas, and welcoming even more new members to the growing global health community.

All the best and a healthy new year!

Detlev Ganten awarded German Global Health Award

‪World Health Summit President Detlev Ganten is this year’s recipient of the German Global Health Award. The award, which recognizes a lifetime of contributions to global health, is issued by the German Health Alliance and Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie under the patronage of German Minister of Health Jens Spahn. 

Joint study by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Charité Global Health reveals opportunities for German leadership in global health

As Germany's engagement in global health increases, the joint study explores opportunities to further strengthen German contributions to the field. In short: Germany shows not only economic capacity and strong political commitment to global health, but also makes significant scientific contributions. The latter is particularly important in light of the importance of research and development to the global health landscape. Germany's input could be improved even further with increased coordination, funding, and attention to research translation.
