Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting (CHMM)

The Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting (CHMM) is the annual meeting of health ministers from across the Commonwealth countries. The meeting reviews activity and events from the previous year and provides a platform for countries to bring issues of health relevance to the attention of their Commonwealth partners and peers. Each CHMM provides a ministerial statement summarising the discussion and priorities for the coming year including setting the theme for the next meeting.

CHMM is held every year in Geneva in mid-May.
