This draft Roadmap for the Global Health for Peace Initiative has been developed in response to resolution WHA75(24) of 75th World Health Assembly (2022), which called for WHO to develop, in full consultation with Member States and Observers, and in full cooperation with other organizations of the United Nations system and relevant non-state actors in official relations with WHO -in, a Roadmap, if any, for the Global Health and Peace Initiative.
It incorporates feedback received from Member States through a first consultation round carried out at the end of 2022. This (second) draft is being made available before 152n.d the session of the Executive Board, which will examine the draft Roadmap.
The Roadmap for the Global Health for Peace Initiative aims to provide a framework for the Initiative at the global level, defining concepts, establishing principles, setting strategic goals and objectives as well as operational priorities. It also describes the “Health for Peace approach” to programming, which lies at the core of the Global Health for Peace Initiative (GHPI). The GHPI is a global WHO initiative that aims to improve the existing links between health (and health interventions) and peace.
