In April 2019, a youth-led panel with representatives from youth and student organizations and global health leaders took place at our house in Stockholm.
Before the panel, we hade the opportunity to sit down with Peter Sands (Executive Director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria) and Dr Seth Berkley (CEO of Gavi the Vaccine Alliance) to discuss their respective work and personal engagement in global health. It became an interesting dialogue spanning over sustainable development goals, barriers to gain impact to achieve the 2030 agenda, the role of stakeholder engagement and reigniting global solidarity. We hope you enjoy it!
The panel Securing long and healthy lives for generations to come – a youth-led conversation was co-organized by the student organization network of the Swedish Institute for Global Health Transformation and the student and junior doctor section of the Swedish Society of Medicine. In the panel participated:
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (WHO Director-General)

Dr Seth Berkley (CEO of Gavi the Vaccine Alliance)
