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).
