The ZEIT Science Forum is a series of discussion events. Founded in 2001, it aims to open controversial contemporary issues to critical scrutiny. The forum takes place at the Leibnizsaal of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science.

The Topic: „70 years of WHO"

The 70th ZEIT FORUM WISSENSCHAFT will be about global health. It’s exactly 70 years since the declaration of health as a human right by the UNO in 1948. In relation to this anniversary, we will raise the question of how far we have come with the issue of global health. We will also discuss the milestones of the WHO – like the eradication of the smallpox – as well as we will draw a critical balance of the engagement of the international Health Organization.
