Join the World Health Summit 2023 from October 15-17 and meet stakeholders from politics, science, the private sector, and civil society from around the world in Berlin, Germany and online. Under the theme "A Defining Year for Global Health Action", WHS 2023 will set the agenda for a healthier future.
“The Summit brings together a wide range of views and provides an environment for open discussions. You are thus laying the foundation for political decisions based on knowledge and good sense. When disinformation campaigns threaten to discredit research findings, help can be found by engaging in scientific dialogue and by pooling expertise. The WHS and you as its participants embody both these elements.”
Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany
"The challenges we face in global health can seem daunting. No single country or agency can address these challenges alone. Let’s learn the lesson of the COVID pandemic: when we work together, we can overcome anything."

"Our ambition: a world where vulnerable countries are better equipped to face future crises, including pandemics, and where we can guarantee the fundamental right to health for all."
