Hyogo-Kobe GLOBAL HEALTH High School Summit Declaration

On 21 August 2016, the WHO Kobe Centre and the G7 Kobe Health Ministers' Meeting Promotion Council organized the first Hyogo-Kobe GLOBAL HEALTH High School Summit, with support from Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW).

At the Summit, about 450 participants discussed how high school students can contribute to global health through research presentations by six High Schools, an expert panel discussion, and 54 poster presentations.

The Hyogo-Kobe Global Health High School declaration developed and adopted by the high school students was presented to the WHO Director General, Dr Margaret Chan, at the end of an official WHO-MHLW side event for the G7 Health Ministers meeting on 10 September 2016.
