2009 ANNUAL MINISTERIAL REVIEW
The 2009 Annual Ministerial Review (AMR), held during the high-level segment of the annual session of the Economic and Social Council (6-9 July 2009) at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, focused on "Implementing the internationally agreed goals and commitments in regard to global public health". It provided an opportunity to:
- Assess the state of implementation of the United Nations Development Agenda;
- Explore key challenges in achieving the international goals and commitments in the area of global public health;
- Consider recommendations and proposals for action, including new initiatives.
A summary of the seven national presentations is now available.
National meetings, regional meetings, a global preparatory meeting and an e-Discussion took place in the run up to the 2009 AMR. A meeting with leading philanthropists, which focussed on health issues, and a special event on traditional medicine were also held.
