“It is important to highlight that the treatment of issues such as antimicrobial resistance and the financing of universal health coverage are issues present today in all international health forums and represent a danger to economic stability as a whole.” (G20 Argentina 2018)

The G20 Health & Development Partnership (G20 HDP) is an advocacy organisation that aims to ensure that G20 countries are coordinating their health innovation strategy to tackle the growing burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases globally to promote the delivery of SDG 3. The Partnership emerged as an informal coalition of like-minded organisations during the G20 Presidency in Germany in 2017 respecting the objectives of SDG 17.
