Why Geneva Health Files?

All Things Global Health. Geneva.

Reported and Curated by Priti Patnaik

This is a journalistic endeavour to capture the confluence of global health and international trade in Geneva. The city’s unique ecosystem with scores of actors, shapes the governance of global health in fascinating and yet, less visible ways. Geneva Health Files is an attempt to shine light on these linkages.
