Health and Diplomacy for Peace

The message of Prof. Massimo María Caneva, MD, PhD and Head of Health and Diplomacy Program


The Health and Diplomacy Program of Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital Foundation was created with the mission to promote the dignity of the human person through ‘global health’, understood as a service to the individual and also the International Community. Cooperation between Diplomacy and Health means combining ‘analysis and action’ of research in order to facilitate and develop, through international relations, all efforts to improve not only the living conditions of populations, but also to spread a true culture of solidarity in International Institutions and Organisations.
This mission is particularly important today when the drama of numerous conflicts and natural disasters are causing increasingly violent divisions and ‘complex emergencies’. Added to the drama of poverty is the loss of entire generations who are no longer able to build their own future. In a recent Appeal 2022 by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the International Community and States are called upon to unite and collaborate for a common response of peace and hope in the face of a state of grave global disorientation!
Health and Diplomacy for Peace intends to support this call and contribute to a professional and human response in the field of global health by promoting greater attention to collaboration between Diplomacy and Health.
