Workshops & Conferences


A mutual awareness of the strategies and priorities that exist in various countries in the area of global health are the prerequisite for joint activities. The Centre Virchow-Villermé  organizes regularly workshops and conferences that seek to compare and contrast Germany and France in terms of their strategies and priorities in various areas of global health. The participants include scientists, students, non-governmental organizations, staff members from government ministries and authorities in Germany, France and the EU.
