The Young Leaders for Health Conference 2017 provides the chance to contribute to the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a special focus on good health and well-being for all.

From 17th to 20th August 2017 Berlin will become the hotspot for aspiring and future global health scientists, politicians and entrepreneurs.
The Simulation: Model World Health Assembly
The World Health Assembly (WHA) is the supreme decision-making body of the WHO (World Health Organisation). Delegations from all 194 Member States meet once a year in Geneva to determine the policies of the organisation. In the simulation process you will assume the role of either a member state delegate, media representative or non-governmental organisation. You will understand the obstacles of global decision-making and learn how to overcome them.
The Workshops: learn from and get in touch with global health experts
The workshop and lecture programme will enable you to gain a deep understanding of the challenge of good health and well-being for all. You will get an insight into the numerous subtopics relating to the SDGs and will be able to test your knowledge whilst discussing your own views on the matter with peers and global health experts alike. These interactive workshops will give participants the chance to find and work on practical solutions to the most pressing health issues worldwide.
