World Health Assembly defines health priorities
Dr Tin Chun Wong, 28 May 2015

May was an exceptionally busy month due to the 68th World Health Assembly taking place at the United Nations Geneva headquarters, which requires a lot of preparation at FDI. It is an event where you can learn a lot from both official statements and I certainly detected in the opening statement of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and official address of WHO Director-General Dr Margaret Chan a reorientation of health priorities.

Together, the statements focused attention on health emergencies (whether Ebola virus or natural disasters), resilience of health systems in general and in emergency situations, and the urgent need to fight antimicrobial resistance. The two also highlighted the need to combat neglected tropical diseases.
