New Voices at The World Health Summit 2022

The World Health Summit and the World Health Organization are joining forces to foster global health and well-being of all.

The World Health Summit 2022 will commence from October 16 till October18. It is the first World Health Summit together with WHO. WHS 2022 is part of a long-term close collaboration, as WHO has been a strong strategic partner of the World Health Summit since its very beginning.

WHS and WHO are both dedicated to the well-being of all people. To give everyone everywhere the chance to live a healthy life is a global effort, and the key to achieve better health for all lies in collaboration and open dialogue, guided by science. This is what WHS 2022 stands for.

This year, two New Voices Senior Fellows; Minda Dentler and Tian Johnson are all set to join the World Health Summit 2022 platform with other prominent speakers from 16 – 18 October in Berlin, Germany.

Minda Dentler (a 2017 Aspen New Voices Fellow) wrote a Project Syndicate article on polio with help from New Voices Community Manager Holly Kearl. As a result, she is speaking at the World Health Summit on a panel about polio eradication with WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

Another New Voices Fellow, Tian Johnson (2021), will share the stage with Dr. John Nkengasong during a World Health Summit for a panel to discuss authentic equitable access to medicines in preparation for the next pandemic.

The World Health Summit will take place in Berlin, Germany, 16-18 October.
