The Global Health Summer program is planned and organized by summer school alumni, medical doctors, and staff members of the German Affiliate of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) with the support of Charité University Medicine.
Alumni usually include students and young professionals from Germany and abroad. Through a collaborative planning process, the Global Health Summer program is the product of international and interdisciplinary exchange and the commitment of many people of many backgrounds.
We also encourage international alumni and IPPNW student chapters to engage in the organisation of side events in their home countries during the Global Health Summer program and to seek ways of strengthening Global South-North dialogues.
The one-day Global Health conference is organized in cooperation with the German Platform for Global Health.
The international Medical Peace Work partnership has been a partner of the GHS since 2015.
IPPNW is a non-governmental federation of national medical groups in 62 countries, representing tens of thousands of medical doctors, medical students, other health workers, and concerned citizens who share the common goal of creating a more peaceful and secure world freed from the threat of nuclear annihilation.

Second, the development of a “Culture of Peace” to raise the awareness of civil society for conflicts. Third, promoting social responsibility in the conviction that doctors carry a responsibility for the realization of a social, peaceful and healthy way of living. More…
