World Health Summit Regional Meeting Uganda postponed due to covid19

Dear friends and partners of the World Health Summit,

Unfortunately, we have to inform you that this year’s World Health Summit Regional Meeting in Kampala, Uganda, scheduled to take place April 27-28, 2020, will be postponed to a later date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ugandan Government and the Ministry of Health of Uganda have jointly decided that all international conferences slated to take place in the country have to be temporarily postponed due to the rapidly escalating health concerns relating to the spread of the coronavirus disease.

We understand and fully support the decision of the Government of Uganda.

The Minister of Health of Uganda Jane Ruth Aceng, said at a press conference on March 7, that there is no confirmed case of SARS-CoV-2 in the country yet but the government was taking precautionary measures for public health.

We are closely monitoring the guidance from the Government of Uganda and the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the spread of COVID-19.

Please know that your health is our top priority and that we will thus act in accordance with guidelines provided by the Government of Uganda and other public health agencies.

We, the organizers of the World Health Summit in Berlin, expect the summit in October to take place as planned. We will keep you updated about the Regional Meeting in Kampala and the summit in Berlin.

Please find all relevant information and updates on the website of the WHO:

Stay safe and stay healthy – wherever you are.
