NorWHO 2017

NorWHO 2017 is a 5-day conference held in the United Nation City in Copenhagen 31st of July – 4th of August 2017. It is a learning program that provides students with a better understanding of the inner workings of the World Health Organization. Participants will learn about global health issues and improve their skills in diplomacy, negotiation, learn to compromise, public speaking, policy making, research and critical thinking.

NorWHO aims to reproduce the ideal environment for young people to practice the skills required in the UN and to engage a networking that will help them become the leaders of tomorrow. Participants get to engage and identify with the different nations they represent. It is a vital practice to be able to put yourself in the position of other countries; this leads to a greater understanding in global issues.

This year’s conference theme is:  Malnutrition – how can we solve the double burden?

Malnutrition is a serious problem affecting all regions of the world. The double burden of malnutrition is characterized by the coexistence of both undernutrition and overweight. Addressing the double burden of malnutrition is essential in order to achieve the sustainable development goals and critical to both health and economic development.

NorWHO invites you to the UN-city in Copenhagen to learn more about and debate these issues on a global scale and try to find possible solutions."
