Since 2007, nearly 200 professionals from various sectors have benefited from this course, which focuses on health diplomacy and negotiations, with a new thematic emphasis each year. This year's course will explore current debates in global health diplomacy at the interface of health and foreign policy. A special focus will be given to health security, the venues of global health diplomacy (WHO, UN, WTO) and the possible contributions of finance ministers to health-related issues.
