SheffWHO is the first health-themed simulation in Sheffield and second to occur in the UK, modelled after the World Health Organization’s (WHO) largest annual meeting – The World Health Assembly!
The Sheffield World Health Organization Simulation or SheffWHO, being held April 27th-29th, addressing the topic of “Outbreaks and Pandemics: Addressing the Next Crisis”.
To tackle this topical health issue, students, alumni, and professionals can represent a WHO Member State (Country), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Pharmaceutical Companies and Media Organisations. Along the way, there will be opportunities to create innovative solutions to improve our world.
Attendees do not require any experience in health policy, debate or the WHO to participate. Whether you’re studying journalism, politics, economics, computer science, public health or medicine this will ensure the creation of diverse interventions to tackle global health issues. At the end of SheffWHO, people will be equipped with the tools to become a more confident and competent global health actor and practitioner.
