Participants, Stockholm meeting

25 April 2017 - From 25 to 26 April 2017, more than 50 health experts, donors, researchers and policy-makers gathered in Stockholm, Sweden, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the inception of the Alliance. The meeting was hosted by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and sponsored by WHO and the World Bank.

Participants gathered in Lejondal in 1997 and again in Stockholm in 2017

Gathered in Stockholm in April 2017 were some who were present in Lejondal and who have continued to champion the field. Other participants included those whose work has influenced its expansion, young leaders, funders and researchers determined to push boundaries to mainstream the use and impact of HPSR.

The statement read at the closing of the meeting is a general summary of the meeting. A more detailed report will follow.
