Strategy for Sweden’s cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) 2021–2025
The Swedish Minister for Health and Social Affairs Lena Hallengren held a speech during the Seventy-fourth World Health Assembly. Sweden has recently launched a new strategy for Sweden’s cooperation with the World Health Organization 2021–2025.
The new Swedish strategy will form the basis of Sweden’s cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) from 2021 to 2025. It sets out objectives, priorities and working procedures. The strategy directs the Government Offices of Sweden and relevant missions abroad. The support channelled by Sida and other government agencies through multilateral organisations, known as multi-bi support, will be in harmony with Swedish priorities and approaches in relation to multilateral organisations.
The purpose of the activity within the context of the strategy is to contribute to national healthcare policy, the implementation of the public health policy framework, Swedish development policy and Sweden’s work on global health, aligned with Swedish policy on global development and the implementation of Agenda 2030. The strategy guides Sweden’s cooperation with WHO at each of WHO’s three levels: global, regional and national.
