#AmrefatUNGA2022 

Between 12-27 September 2022, Heads of State and Government, civil society, development organizations, youth and philanthropists will descend on New York for the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 77), where they will discuss key political, development and health issues influencing our current reality and shaping the future.
 
As the annual gathering draws near it is impossible to ignore how much is at stake for a world still scarred by the COVID-19 pandemic, only to be gripped by concerns over a global monkeypox outbreak, the food and climate crises and conflict in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
 
Against this backdrop Amref Health Africa, together with our partners, has curated several events to be held on the sidelines of UNGA 77. These have been designed to call attention to some of the world’s most pressing health and development challenges, including preventing the next pandemic, climate resilience and justice, robust health systems and universal health coverage, all of which are expected to take centre stage at the Assembly.
 
Here is a list of events scheduled to take place:
