Each Year the GHA – German Health Alliance is represented with a panel on the World Health Summit (WHS) in Berlin. In this year’s edition our Chairman of the Board Mr. Roland Göhde takes part in the session:
The Role of Parliamentarians in the Development of a Global Pandemic Treaty
October 17, 2.00 p.m. – 3.30 p.m.
UNITE Global Parliamentarians Network to End Infectious Diseases & The Parliamentary Network on the World Bank & International Monetary Fund (IMF) led in 2021, the creation of the International Forum on Global Health, a working group gathering members from twelve different international Parliamentary Assemblies and Networks worldwide, under a common global health and economic agenda.
In 2022, the working group will focus its work on pandemic preparedness and on delivering a list of recommendations to incorporate in the negotiations of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) in terms of Governance and Leadership, Legislation and national regulatory system, Equity, Accountability and oversight, and Financing.
Using the outreach and diversity of the members of the International Forum on Global Health, parliamentarians will try to establish a concrete action plan for parliamentarians to follow around the world in support of the Global Pandemic Treaty.
