The World Health Summit will bring together highprofile representatives from medicine, research, governments, industry, international institutions, and non-governmental organizations, to address the most pressing issues that medicine and health care systems will face over the next decade and beyond. The aim of the summit is to develop cogent and timely responses and solutions to achieve a better health standard for populations worldwide. The World Health Summit is the annual international conference of the M8 Alliance of leading Academic Health Centers and Medical Universities. The World
Health Summit presents the opportunity to unleash the
creativity and power of academic medicine to shape the
future of global health in partnership with public, private

Through the World Health Summit, the M8 Alliance
invites leaders from academia, the health care industry,
governments and civil society to share lessons learned,
jointly develop strategies and take action to address key
challenges in global health, health care delivery and

political and social agenda.
Under the patronage of German Chancellor Angela
Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, the
World Health Summit brings together a diverse range of
public, private and non-profit institutions to accelerate
solutions to the most pressing issues in global health
care today.
