GHA/BDI Evening Reception - Germany's Role in Global Health - A Multisectoral Perspective

12. September 2022, Berlin

The GHA (German Health Alliance) and the BDI (Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie e.V.) would like to cordially invite you to their evening reception on 12 September at the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus in Berlin. The event consists of two parts, a panel discussion on Global Health followed by a get-together. After having to postpone their event last year due to the pandemic, they are very pleased to finally meet you in person and exchange views with you on international health discussions.

Germany is home to many large and small companies in the health sector that have been involved internationally for many decades. In recent years, Germany's engagement in Global Health has also expanded considerably. Germany and Berlin are becoming a centre for Global Health. For the first time in 16 years, there are significant political changes in Germany. What are the perspectives for Germany's engagement in Global Health?
