G20 Health Ministers Issue Detailed Declaration Addressing Global Health Goals

Health Policy Watch: G20 Health Ministers Issue Detailed Declaration On Global Health Goals
“A G20 Health Ministers Declaration, issued after a two-day meeting of ministers in Okayama, Japan, has endorsed rapid achievement of universal health coverage, a more effective support of healthy aging, increased attention to health emergencies and their underlying causes such as poverty and weak health systems, and more forceful action on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The detailed 11-page statement by health ministers of the world’s 20 largest economies — goes well beyond the more general commitment by G20 leaders to advance global health goals, which was issued at the close of their two-day meeting on 27-28 June…” (Fletcher, 10/22).
