World Health Summit Returns to Berlin

This year’s World Health Summit was held from 15 to 17 October 2017 at Kosmos in Berlin. The destination was chosen by the Summit for the 9th consecutive time, as the city provides all sorts of research facilities, advanced healthcare industry and important hospitals.

Professor Detlev Ganten, Founding President of the World Health Summit said: “The Charité University Medical Centre in Berlin helped bring the World Health Summit about and remains a close partner to this day. Berlin is also an ideal venue for organising events, since all of the key decision-makers in politics, science, business, and society in general are represented here.”

 This year’s agenda included big Data, digitalisation, health security, and sustainability, while around 2000 participants from 100 countries, including seven ministers, two Nobel Prize winners, and leading figures from renowned companies and NGOs (including the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and Save the Children), attended the Summit.
