INVITATION: Week of the Working Groups 2021
Dear members of the GHHG,
We would like to invite you to the virtual Week of the Working Groups 2021 of the Global Health Hub Germany taking place from March 22nd – 25th 2021.
The overall focus of this event week, which is organized in close cooperation with the working groups (WGs) of the Global Health Hub Germany, is getting to know each other and encouraging cross-actor and cross-sector exchange between working groups and interested hub members on various global health topics. In addition, some working groups will present specific results from last year’s work.
The Week of the Working Groups 2021 offers all Hub members the opportunity to get to know approaches and objectives of the different working groups, to discuss concrete results of working group activities, and to become more involved in the various subject areas of global health.
In addition to various Working Group Meetings, further Webinar Sessions covering current debates in global health are planned as part of the event week. The week is rounded off by a joint opening and closing session.
The Working Group Meetings on March 23rd, 2021 offer interested parties the opportunity to exchange ideas with active working group members and to participate in the planning of upcoming activities for 2021. The following working groups will organize meetings as part of the event week:
- WG Schlangenbissvergiftungen

- WG Partnerships for Global Health
- WG Global Urban Health
- WG Global Mental Health
In addition, several working groups will present results and discuss current topics in global health with experts on March 22nd and 24th, 2021. The following four Webinar Sessions are planned:
