The coalition issued a ‘call to action’ at a conference on global health innovation in Berlin, Germany, demanding that G20 health ministers commit new long-term investment to pandemic preparedness, as well as to health technologies to combat antimicrobial resistance, and poverty-related and neglected diseases, when they meet in the German capital in May…” (Young-Powell, 5/2).
