JLI’s Director of Health Diplomacy, Dr Christoph Benn, will be chairing an event with the Germany Health Ministry and Global Health Hub Germany. The topic is Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: Lessons Learned from Cooperation in the HIV/AIDS Epidemic”.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, health security became highly relevant to all of us – but global health comprises much more. Over the past 40 years, we have been collecting valuable experiences in health promotion and the prevention of disease, particularly in the context of the HIV-response. Building on these experiences, health promotion and disease prevention represent a key priority in the German Strategy for Global Health, adopted in October 2020.
In the upcoming online event, Binod Mahanty (BMG) and Alexander Freese (BMZ) will highlight relevant aspects of Germany’s commitment to Global Health as well as the chances and challenges for HIV-prevention.
We will also learn about examples of prevention work in Germany from Dr Miriam Gerlich (Federal Centre for Health Education, Germany). Fortune Chibamba (National AIDS Council, Zambia) will give us some insights about health promotion activities in Zambia, while Peter Wiessner (Action against AIDS, Germany) will represent the point of view of German civil society in light of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The discussion will be moderated by Dr Christoph Benn (Joep Lange Institute), who will invite the audience to ask questions. Your participation will be highly appreciated!
