History of WHO
The Global Health Histories seminar series was established in late 2004. Its mission is based on the principle that understanding the history of health, especially during the last 60 years, helps the global public health community to respond to the challenges of today and help shape a healthier future for everyone, especially those most in need.
Seminars take place once a month, and bring together an external academic speaker and a WHO policy maker to debate pressing issues across the spectrum of global public health.
New topics in 2013
The 2013 seminar series will explore the history of anti-microbial resistance, global health leadership, traditional Chinese medicine, NGO contributions to public health, digital communication and health, health law, medical tourism, global health communication, and international trade and public health.
The 2013 series continues to be supported by the University of York and the Wellcome Trust.
All seminars are held in the WHO library from 12:30 – 14:00 and are also broadcast via webinar. To register for a webinar, please contact: GHHistories@who.int.
