We were invited by the Federal Foreign Office to hold our GHP Assembly Meeting at the International Club in Berlin. Dr Stephan Grabherr, Federal Foreign Office, spoke about the current developments in international politics and world trade regarding, among other things, Brexit. Gabriele Katzmarek (SPD), Member of the German Parliament, shared her views on digitalization of healthcare in development cooperation and Dr Georg Kippels (CDU), Member of the German Parliament, reported on the work of the parliamentary committee on health, the sub-committee on Global Health and on the work on health-related topics in the CDU/CSU. Prof. Dr med Jürgen May enriched our meeting with a presentation on the Bernhard-Nocht-Institute for Tropical Medicine and its research on infectious diseases in Africa. The institute clearly makes a significant contribution to Global Health.
