The World Health Summit is one of the world’s leading strategic forums for global health. Held annually in Berlin, it brings together leaders from politics, science and medicine, civil society, and the private sector to set the agenda for a healthier future. Over 300 speakers and 2,500 participants from 100 countries take part, including ministers, top scientists, and CEOs.
It is traditionally held under the high patronage of the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, the President of the French Republic, and the President of the European Commission.
Founded at Charité in 2009, the World Health Summit is built on the academic foundation the M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centers,
Universities, and National Academies, a scientific network spanning 18 countries.
