Global Health Watch 5: Berlin launch

For over a decade, Global Health Watch has been the definitive source for alternative analysis on health.

Global Health Watch 5 (GHW5) is the latest edition of what remains the leading source for radical analysis in global and development healthcare.

For over a decade, Global Health Watch has been the definitive source for alternative analysis on health and healthcare, challenging conventional wisdom and pioneering innovative new approaches to the field. This new edition addresses the key challenges facing governments and health practitioners today, within the context of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Collaboratively written by academics and activists drawn from a variety of movements, research institutions, and civil society groups, its case studies cover some of the most pressing issues in world health, from the resurgence of epidemic diseases such as Ebola to antimicrobial resistance, climate change, and the ‘war on drugs’.

Combining rigorous analysis with practical policy suggestions, Global Health Watch 5 offers an accessible and compelling case for a radical new approach to healthcare across the world.

Join us for a discussion on the latest GHW edition and its relevance in the German context. Register at: https://ghw5-berlin-­launch.eventbrite.com.au

This event is co-­organised by the Berlin Interdisciplinary Global Health Network, CIEE Global Institute – Berlin and Medico International. For questions, please contact: torisaint01@ gmail.com.
