Global Health Histories/WHO anniversary Lectures, organized in association with the Wellcome Trust and the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, UK to be held at the WHO in Geneva March to December 2008. (360G-Wellcome-085267_Z_08_Z)

Title of the meeting: 'Global Health Histories/WHO anniversary Lectures, organized in association with the Wellcome Trust and the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, UK', WHO headquarters, Geneva. This will be the first lecture series of its kind within the headquarters of the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. The aim is to engage those involved in formulating and implementing health policies with historians of medicine working on policy-related issues, in the expectation that these interactions will be useful to all concerned. The usefulness of historical findings is being increasingly acknowledged within the WHO, as its employees have become more enthusiastic about carrying out more detailed political and social negotiations in the countries and regions where public health and medical schemes are being put into place. The work of the invited speakers is, therefore, likely to be instructive to WHO workers of different ranks and departments, including those seconded to the different Regional Offices on advisory capacities.
