The Global Health Hub Germany is based on the understanding that different actors from various fields and disciplines play an important role in finding solutions to current global health challenges. The Global Health Hub Germany aims to improve the cooperation and exchange across thematic areas and sectors and among the various stakeholders engaged in global health by providing a platform for better information exchange and the initiation of new partnerships and projects.  

At this event, we want to introduce the Global Health Hub Germany, its goals and its mode of cooperation to a wider international audience. We want to discuss the importance of working with different sectors and actors for global health. What can be achieved through better networking? Which role can the Global Health Hub Germany play to support this cooperation?

The event will be held in English. The event is free of charge but registration is required and on a first come, first served basis. To join the event, please register here!
