Hertie School hosts panel on global health security

Event to conclude 2017 World Health Summit in Berlin; Hertie School is a partner.

On 18 October, the Hertie School will host a panel discussion addressing the role security stakeholders play in an integrated, comprehensive approach to health security.

The discussion will take place the day after the conclusion of the 2017 World Health Summit (15-17 October), where global health security is a central topic. The annual Berlin-based event brings together stakeholders from academia, the healthcare industry, government and civil society to discuss international healthcare issues. The Hertie School is proud to be a supporting partner.

The Program Director of the World Health Summit is Julian Kickbusch, a 2009 alumnus of the Hertie School’s Master of Public Policy programme. He also co-teaches a course at the Hertie School, “Welfare states and health policy,” together with Klaus Hurrelmann, Professor of Public Health and Education.

Students currently enrolled in the course will attend selected sessions of the World Health Summit as rapporteurs. The event is the culmination of the first part of their course, which focuses on the interrelation between political traditions of different countries and their health policies and governance.
