Crazy UNGA week

By on September 23, 2016   Dear Colleagues,

It’s “crazy UNGA week” in New York, and as our world is getting ever more wicked and complex, with a multitude of (sometimes vicious) feedback loops in place, it seems befitting that this week’s events  and (side) sessions were more frantic, releases of High-Level Reports more abundant, my Twitter feed more exploding (and thus my own mental health more jeopardized) than ever before. And it ain’t over yet. So without much further ado, let’s get started with the newsletter!

This week’s Featured article by Remco van de Pas dwells on the just released report of the  High-Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth. Another HL report, I hear you sigh. Yet, this one is different…

Also quite some attention in this newsletter for the 5th Global Fund Replenishment (Montreal) and the AMR High-Level meeting in New York, as you can imagine. Later today, you’ll also find out who the candidates are for the WHO DG election.  If we can believe the rumours, there will be some last minute surprises!

Enjoy your reading.
