In this week’s issue, the (10th) World Health Summit and annual Grand Challenges meeting (both in Berlin) feature prominently. In the final run-up to the Astana event next week, it’s also raining special supplements on the 40th anniversary of Alma Ata, among others in BMJ Global Health and the Lancet. On Wednesday, after an IHR Emergency Committee got together on the Ebola virus disease outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, WHO (again) decided the outbreak is not (yet?) a PHEIC, although the situation remains very worrying (and some would have liked indeed, for this reason, a PHEIC); End Poverty Day was “celebrated” as well as the Club of Rome’s 50th birthday this week, London hosted the International Safeguarding Summit, … and there’s plenty of other news.
Enjoy your reading.
