Side-events at 77th World Health Assembly:  There will not be official side-events organized during the WHA77 at the Palais des Nations. Instead, the Secretariat is organizing high level Strategic Roundtables during the Assembly. More information on them will be on the WHO website and the WHA77 Programme of Work. However, many side-events are organized outside the Palais des Nations, and as previous years, United National Foundation will be hosting the calendar of events on their website and you are welcome to send them information on your side-event to be listed there, should you be hosting one. Kindly contact Camden Malone cmalone@unfoundation.org. For any other questions, please contact us at HMP@who.int.
