Devex Covers 2014 World Health Assembly Meeting, Notes 3 Key Issues To Watch For

Devex: World Health Assembly 2014 — 3 things to look out for in Geneva
Cécile Vernant, head of E.U. advocacy at Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevoelkerung

“This week, the World Health Assembly [WHA] in Geneva brings with it a packed agenda and a whole host of questions around a number of key issues for global health policy makers. In a critical period for the crafting of the post-2015 framework, this WHA will provide important signposts as to the likely focus and priorities ahead of September’s U.N. General Assembly in New York. … As we head toward an exciting week of discussion and debate, there are three key issues to watch out for.” They include “charting a course for reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health;” “a key role for SRHR [sexual and reproductive health and rights] in the post-2015 agenda;” and “the role of global health R&D” (5/19).
