About 2000 participants attended the three day World Health Summit (WHS) in Berlin under the patronage of Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and German Health Minister Herman Gröhe. The presidency for this year was held by Helene Boisjoly, University of Montreal and WHS-founding President Detlev Ganten, Charite-University. Both are partners of the M8-Alliance, a 2009 founded network of 20 global Academic Health Centers, Universities and National Academies.
