Global Health @ Europe

Throughout here recent career Ilona Kickbusch was one of the driving forces to propose a strong role for Europe in global health. She created Global Health Europe which was initially managed by the Global Health Centre in Geneva. One of the outcomes of the advocacy work was the EU Council Conclusions on the EU role in Global Health 2010.

She has published in 2016 with Thea Emmerling a book on Europe’s role in global health “The European Union as a global health actor”.

Under the Finnish EU Presidency, a new initiative to strengthen the European role in global health has emerged and an expert group has been established. A paper to take the discussions forward is in preparation with the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute, Geneva.
