Dear Colleague,

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)—charged with leading

Stakeholder Listening Session on *Friday, May 11, 3:00 – 4:30 PM*, in the
HHS Hubert H. Humphrey Building Auditorium located at 200 Independence Ave,

The Stakeholder Listening Session will help the HHS Office of Global
Affairs prepare for the World Health Assembly by taking full advantage of
the knowledge, ideas, feedback, and suggestions from all individuals
interested in and affected by agenda items to be discussed at the 71st
World Health Assembly. Your input will contribute to U.S. positions as we
negotiate these important health topics with our international colleagues.

The listening session will be organized around the interests and
perspectives of individuals familiar with the following topics and groups:
•       Public health and advocacy activities;
•       State, local, and Tribal issues;
•       Private industry;
•       Minority health organizations; and
•       Academic and scientific organizations.

It will allow public comment on all agenda items to be discussed at the
71st World Health Assembly. This invitation will also be posted in the
Federal Register and on hhs.gov/global.
