G20 Should Take Action On Global Health, Development

“As the world gears up for the next G20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia, the Global Network is dialing down on the summit’s agenda in a push to get global health included as a key policy issue,” the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases’ “End the Neglect” blog writes. The blog highlights a concept note submitted by the network to the Australian Civil Society Steering Committee (C20) on Friday, “which outlines why global health matters to the G20.” The blog continues, “We are looking to the G20 — the world’s leading economies — to take concrete, tangible actions on global health and development this year” (Cashwell, 12/13).
