Geneva Global Health Hub: "We are building a strong civil society space in Geneva for more democratic global health"
Geneva Global Health Hub The project of a Geneva Global Health Hub (G2H2) has been launched in a civil society side event to the 69th World Health Assembly in May 2016, after more than a year of preparatory work. "The overall objective of the proposed Geneva Global Health Hub (G2H2) is to contribute to longer-term strategic thinking and coherent and sustained action by civil society entities involved in global health advocacy, taking account of country-level contributions and national variability. The imbalance of presence and inputs in global health debates between civil society organizations defending the public interest and others defending commercial interests, due in particular to large disparities in resources, calls for creating strong and stable alliances among the various organizations representing civil society and sharing common values. By creating a space where these organizations can meet, share knowledge and strategize, civil society can have a more sustainable presence and meaningful engagement in relevant discussions and key negotiations”.
