The Silent Health Emergency
Sexual and Reproductive Health, Family Planning, and Maternal, Newborn and Child Health
Circle: The Silent Health Emergency
May 4, 2022
Global crises make us aware of areas that need improvement – the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrated the effects of inefficient health financing. It is in exceptional situations that women and girls are particularly affected. Access to safe and affordable sexual and reproductive health (SRH), family planning, and maternal, newborn, and child health is critical.
At our breakfast circle with Melinda French Gates we focussed on women’s health, gender equality, financing of global health intuitions, and Germany’s continued role in global leadership. Together with our guests, we discussed why it is so important to continue financing of global health intuitions such as the Global Fund and the Global Financing Facility. The Global Fund has had many positive gains over the years as it drastically decreased the cases of Tuberculosis, Malaria and HIV worldwide.
We believe in proximity building trust. Our most personal format therefore offers the opportunity to deepen the knowledge of our high-ranking guests in a small circle, together with an exchange of experiences, in dialogue.
