Call To Action for the G20 Summit, Japan 2019

The G20 Health and Development Partnership invites you to join in its Annual G20 Conference being held on 24th June 2019 in Tokyo, the week of the G20 Heads of Government Summit.

The theme this year focusses on G20 health and finance ministers to explore new and innovative ways of funding research and development and delivery in tackling the growing disease burden.

It is an opportunity to demonstrate the direct link between sustainable economic growth and investments in improving the health of citizens.

Following the successful launch of the G20 Health and Development Partnership Report “Healthy Nations – Sustainable Economies” in March, the Partnership is convening stakeholders from governments, civil society, public-private partnerships,  private sector, multilateral organizations and academia ahead of the Joint Session of the G20 Health and Finance Ministers in Osaka, to encourage concrete actions by G20 ministers and heads of government.

Global health research and development (R&D) is foundational to achieving universal health coverage. The roundtable will discuss how best to incentivise global health R&D, combat antimicrobial resistance and promote global health security using cutting-edge technology. The roundtable will specifically explore the role of innovative financing mechanisms and the role of non-traditional actors in mobilising resources for ensuring sustainable financing for global health innovation.

The roundtable will explore how the G20s prioritisation on leveraging finance for global health innovation can accelerate the response to SDG 3 – ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing for all and SDG 17 –supporting coherent policies, an enabling environment and a platform where multi-stakeholder partnerships converge.

In advance of the 2019 G20 Osaka Summit, the Partnership wants to ensure that these issues are given political priority and sustained commitment at all levels national, regional and international.
