IHP news #490 (September 28, 2018)

#UNGA73 frenzy

By on September 28, 2018



Dear Colleagues,

In the coming weeks IHP will be “immersed” in the Liverpool EV 2018 venture and then the global symposium (aka the “HSS Jamboree”), so you’ll forgive us if the newsletter is a bit more steno-style than usual. By the way, we’re already curious what this year’s buzzwords will be at the symposium – the term “resilient health systems” feels a bit stale by now. An EV colleague who already arrived in Liverpool said on Twitter, reflecting on the upcoming conference, “we need to stop “spinning” and move towards #making a difference to individuals, communities & systems”. Sadly, IHP – being a bit of a Gramsci fan – firmly believes in spinning and framing.

We are also digesting the results of the evaluation done over summer by my colleague Clara. Changes will be gradually implemented from end of October on, if resources allow.

This week’s issue obviously focuses on UNGA 73 & the Global Goals week. Or if you want, the “High-Level Circus” in New York : )

Enjoy your reading.
