B20 Health Conference

Following our “G20 Global Health Innovation” roundtable discussions in Berlin on 29th April, we were honoured to be part of the B20 Health Conference on 18th May 2017 where our Executive Chairman Alan Donnelly highlighted the importance of a mutli-stakeholder cooperation between politicians, the private sector and public private partnerships as well as NGO’s in order to address the interrelated challenges of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), pandemic preparedness/ response and Poverty Related Neglected Diseases (PRNDs). He joined Merck, CEPI and FIND in order to discuss ways to eliminate Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) by 2020.

We are grateful to the B20 and its Health Initiative for this inspiring conference and the convergence, in several areas, between our initiative and the B20.  We are also appreciative about the impact of our “G20 Global Health Innovation” roundtable discussions and our Call to Action in the final G20 Health Ministers Declaration.
