Humphrey Building Auditorium located at 200 Independence Ave, SW.

The Stakeholder Listening Session will help the HHS Office of Global Affairs prepare for the World Health Assembly by taking full advantage of the knowledge, ideas, feedback, and suggestions from all individuals interested in and affected by agenda items to be discussed at the 72nd World Health Assembly. Your input will contribute to U.S. positions as we negotiate these important health topics with our international colleagues.

The listening session will be organized around the interests and perspectives of individuals familiar with the following topics and groups:

  • Public health and advocacy activities;
  • State, local, and Tribal issues;
  • Private industry;
  • Minority health organizations; and
  • Academic and scientific organizations.

It will allow public comment on all agenda items to be discussed at the 72nd World Health Assembly. This invitation has been posted in the Federal Register.
