Berlin, October 17, 2023. The World Health Summit 2023 ended this afternoon after three days with 370 speakers in 63 sessions. Around 3,100 participants from 106 countries took part on site in Berlin.
At the central closing event, World Health Summit President Axel R. Pries called for international coöperation: “The global health community must set an example in international partnership and coöperation to tackle the mounting challenges of providing healthy living conditions worldwide.”
The push for fair and sustainable multilateralism and improving global health care in times of climate change are also the topics of the M8 Alliance Declaration, issued at the end of the World Health Summit. Central demands: “Move from fragmentation to coöperation and integration, address disparities within and between countries, address the needs of the most vulnerable.”
