2 days | 8 panels | 60+ speakers | 8 Fire-Side Discussions | A CALL TO ACTION to G20 Leaders, Health and Finance Ministers
G20 and G7 policymakers, government ministers, multilateral organisations, the global health community, the private sector, economists and investors, civil society and academia, will join discussions to build upon the recommendations of the G7 Leaders Declaration and ensure cohesiveness and assess the G20 Presidency priorities ahead of this year’s G20 Health-, Finance Ministerial and Leaders’ meetings.
The Summit will be opened by Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the WHO and Baroness Patricia Scotland, Secretary General of the Commonwealth with further speakers to be announced shortly.
Day 1 – will focus on the role of global health in times of multipolar crises and the need for more proactive cohesiveness between the G20 and G7. The report “The Roadmap to Sustainable Finance in Health,” will be launched during the H20 and participants will highlight the misalignment between the health and finance community. They will discuss the trends in sustainable financing in health and assess the need to redesign the Global Health Architecture, given the multi-faceted challenges that impact Health4All including climate change, geopolitical turmoil, social exclusion and migration.
Day 2 – will take stock of current political initiatives within the G20+ and their impact on rising challenges, such as antimicrobial resistance. Further panels will discuss the opportunities to improve Health4All by harnessing AI solutions. Panellists will also evaluate the risks on this path, potentially manifesting or increasing inequitable access to healthcare and innovation, triggered, amongst others, by social exclusion. Finally, participants will discuss the impact of the gender divide on healthcare and external risks such as climate change.
