The European Commission is organizing five Meetings of the Global Health Policy Forum in 2014. The events will bring together Commission DGs, the European External Action Service, the Member States, third country representatives, non-government organizations, industry representatives, as well as representatives of international organizations to exchange views on various topics in global health and maximize synergies between the different actors.

The European Commission is organizing five Meetings of the Global Health Policy Forum in 2014 to take place on the following dates:

The main objective of the Global Health Policy Forum is to ensure an open dialogue between the Commission Services and key stakeholders. This should help to strengthen the EU's voice in global health by ensuring coherence between its internal and external health policies in attaining global health goals.

The events will bring together Commission DGs, the European External Action Service, the Member States, third country representatives, non-government organizations, industry representatives, as well as representatives of international organizations to exchange views on various topics in global health and maximize synergies between the different actors.

The Global Health Policy Forum was established following the Commission Communication on Global Health, adopted on the 30 March 2010 and the consequent Council Conclusions, adopted in May 2010. The main services involved are DG Health and Consumers, DG Development and Cooperation and DG Research and Innovation. The first Global Health Policy Forum was organized by DG Health and Consumers in 2011. Since then, rotating the chair annually, each of the DG Health and Consumers, DG Development and Cooperation and DG Research and Innovation have organized them. In 2014 DG Health and Consumers is once again organizing the forum.
