Sign on to a Call to Action urging G20 to provide leadership in combating pandemics, drug resistance, and major poverty-related and neglected diseases.
In an increasingly interconnected world where diseases cross borders with ease, we must all work together to ensure we have the technologies and systems in place to prevent the next global health crisis which could have a devastating health and economic impact.
That’s why the Global Health Technologies Coalition, in partnership with a coalition of other global health organizations, is calling on G20 leaders to make global health innovation a priority on the G20 agenda and commit investment in research, innovation, and development of innovative health technologies to counter threats posed by antimicrobial resistance (AMR), poverty-related and neglected diseases (PRNDs), and pandemics.
Тhe Global Health Technologies Coalition invites all those who share this vision to add their signature to the coalition’s online Call to Action petition.
This Call to Action specifically calls for G20 leaders to take the following actions:
The risk of resistance and emerging infectious diseases, combined with increased transnational mobility, poses a major challenge for the global health community. Innovative technologies are essential components of control, elimination, and eradication strategies, but developing these technologies takes long-term political and economic commitment.
Through sustained leadership and financial commitment from G20 leaders in combatting neglected diseases and AMR, we can protect against pandemics, reduce global burden of disease, lift millions out of poverty, and avert billions of dollars of economic and social costs.
Sign on to the Call to Action urging G20 leaders to prioritize health innovation in the G20 agenda and sustainably invest in this vital work.
