G20 Health and Development Partnership Report Launch 2019
On 5 March 2019, the G20 Health & Development Partnership hosted an event to launch their report entitled “Healthy Nations – Sustainable Economies: How Innovation Can Ensure Better Health For All” at the House of Commons in London, UK.
The current health financing landscape shows that less than 10% of the worldwide resources are devoted towards health in low- and middle-income countries, where more than 90% of all preventable infectious disease deaths occur. The report highlights the need for innovative partnerships and financing models to overcome these gaps and treat health challenges with utmost importance throughout the G20 and beyond.
The report is authored by our Board member, Professor David L. Heymann, Head of the Global Health Security at Chatham House, and Lord Jim O’Neill, Chair of Chatham House, has provided the foreword. Policy-makers across the G20 including the G20 Parliaments, the European Parliament, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Commonwealth endorsed its findings. The report is supported by 21 leading global organizations, representing more than 1000 collaborators in a unique cross-sectoral partnership that includes FIND.
