14:00 CEST - 16:00 CEST


Health Action International (HAI) was born during the World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva in 1981. A year in which the world celebrated the eradication of smallpox, brought about by a mass vaccination campaign led by World Health Organization (WHO). Forty years later, we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and face an ongoing fight to ensure equitable access to safe, effective, quality-medicines and vaccines for everyone, everywhere. While this work remains a priority, HAI will take the time to reflect on the past 40 years, look to our future as a civil society NGO in a globalised world, and celebrate with those who make up our past, present, and most importantly, our future. The highlight of the year will be an event that acts both as a celebration and an opportunity to discuss the place of civil society in global health debate today.

The event will be split into two sessions:

Session 1
Conflicts of Interest, Political Tension & Lost Values in Global Health

Session 2
A Celebration of 40 Years of Influence
