The online session on Beyond a World Health Assembly resolution: how to implement and institutionalize social participation and accountability?
Since the launch of the WHO Handbook on Social Participation for UHC in 2021, there has been growing political leadership among WHO Member States on social participation, leading to the proposal of a resolution to be adopted by the 77th World Health Assembly in May 2024. The agenda of social participation – and social accountability – is strongly supported by a range of civil society actors, including those who engaged in dialogues with the WHO Director General in 2021 and continue to participate in consultations with the Member State co-chairs of the proposed resolution, Slovenia and Thailand.
In this session, the organizers will, after introducing the draft WHA resolution scheduled for consideration at EB154, already look at the next steps and explore avenues and best practices for institutionalizing and sustaining social participation at national level. We will hear from the pen holders of the WHA resolution about their ambitions and also from Member States and civil society on realities and expectations regarding the current implementation of social participation and accountability.
