WB/WHO meeting: Out of the shadows - Making Mental Health a Global Development Priority

December 28th, 2015

In April 2016, the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization will co-host a high-level meeting on global mental health, with a focus on depression and anxiety, to coincide with the 2016 Spring Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group.

The meeting’s aim is to move mental health from the margins to the mainstream of the global health agenda by raising its profile before Ministers of Finance, Ministers of Health, other high level government officials, international development aid agencies, foundations and private sector partners, and civil society.

The meeting will be co-hosted by the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization.
