The field of global health is changing, with interest in a new era of multi-stakeholder involvement, chronic non-communicable diseases, health system strengthening, and universal health coverage.

The 66th World Health Assembly, the primary decision-making body of the World Health Organization (WHO), will consider these critical topics for addressing the health-related post-2015 development goals at its upcoming meeting in Geneva (May 20 to 28).

Join us --- the Global Health Council, Anheuser-Busch InBev, the Center for Global Health and Diplomacy, and Management Sciences for Health (MSH) --- in person or virtually, for a panel discussion on May 21 on how the global health community is responding to shifting health priorities, and what’s working—and what’s not—in the way we approach health delivery.

Speakers from ministries of health, donor governments, private sector, and civil society will share ideas for building collaborations to reach those in greatest need and discuss how to continue the conversation at national and regional levels once delegates have returned home. Speakers will include:

  • Hussein Ali Mwinyi, Minister of Health, Tanzania
  • Dr. Suraya Dalil, Minister of Public Health, Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan
  • Princess Sarah Zeid, A maternal health advocate for the UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children
  • Dr. James Rice, Project Director, Leadership Management & Governance, Management Sciences for Health (MSH)
  • Dr. Scott C. Ratzan, Vice President, Global Corporate Affairs, AB InBev, Co-Chair, UN Innovation Working Group on Women and Children's Health
  • Joanne Manrique, President of The Center for Global Health Diplomacy

A networking reception, with remarks by Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of UNAIDS (invited), will follow the discussion.
