Mission Innovation has been closely and carefully monitoring the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the impact it is having on member countries.

The Chilean Ministry of Health estimates that the coronavirus will likely be very active in the Southern Hemisphere and in Chile as winter and the usual flu season approaches.

Keeping our members, stakeholders, and partners safe and healthy remains our most important concern. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we will no longer hold the CEM11/MI-5 Ministerial meetings in Viña del Mar, Chile, from June 2 – 4, 2020.

We are now examining the most effective path forward to ensure the success of the Ministerial. In addition, as MI reaches the end of its 5-year mandate, members continue to push forward on a plan for its second phase.

More details to come.
