WHO Europe: Reflecting on Public Health Progress

Member states will be reflecting on public health progress of past 10 years and set health priorities for Europe at the 69th session of the WHO Regional Committee for Europe (RC69). IOGT International will again be present, for the third year in a row.

On September 16 to 19, 2019, health ministers and high-level representatives of the 53 Member States of the WHO European Region, along with partner organizations and civil society, will gather for the RC69 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The session will provide delegates with an opportunity to reflect on public health achievements, and how the European policy framework Health 2020 has driven progress across the Region during Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab’s tenure as WHO Regional Director for Europe.

Priority health topics including health equity, health literacy and accelerating primary health care through organizational and technological innovation are also on the agenda. In addition, this year’s session will include the election of the new WHO Regional Director for Europe.
