to take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 9 to
20 March 2020. Representatives of Member States, UN entities, and

of the world are invited to attend the session. Further important

World Health Summit Regional Meeting 2020
27-28 April 2020 | Kampala, Uganda
WHS - The central themes of the Regional Meeting 2020 are in line with the
African journey towards meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals
and achieving universal health coverage. They include:
The Health of the African Youth
Africa has a high population of young people. These youth are growing
up in a context of widespread poverty, high rates of unemployment,
rapid urbanization, often limited educational opportunities and rapid
socio-cultural transformations. These challenges have far-reaching
implications for their health and well-being.
Advancing Technology for Health in Africa
The impact of information and communications technologies in health
has grown tremendously. These technologies are a key mediator in service
delivery and development in Africa.
