Join us for the fifth year of the World Health +SocialGood event, broadcast live from the World Health Assembly, May 22 — 24, 2018.

The World Health Assembly (WHA) is the supreme decision-making body of the World Health Organization. Held annually in Geneva, Switzerland, WHA is attended by delegations from all 194 World Health Organization (WHO) Member States. 

WHA focuses on a health agenda that covers a wide range of key global health issues from non-communicable diseases, to nutrition, to emergency outbreaks, to universal health coverage. This year, WHO’s 70th anniversary, Member States will vote on the Director-General’s General Programme of Work that will guide the organization through 2023.

On May 22, 23, and 24, at the 71st WHA, WHO and the United Nations Foundation will partner to produce World Health +SocialGood.

Through a daily live, 30-minute online broadcast, World Health +SocialGood will provide insight into the major issues being debated at the World Health Assembly, while offering exclusive, original content and conversations with experts — including opportunities for viewers to ask questions!
