MSF Open Letter To G20 Health Ministers Highlights 3 Global Health Priority Areas

Médecins Sans Frontières: Open letter from MSF to the Meeting of the G20 Health Ministers
In an open letter to the health ministers of the G20, Joanne Liu, president of MSF International, writes, “Every day in our medical operations, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) faces numerous barriers to providing medical care and dignity to people in need. We therefore welcome the decision of the G20 to place ‘Global Health’ on its agenda. … We believe the G20 states should pay particular attention to three priority areas. … Attacks on medical facilities … Emergency preparedness and response … Antimicrobial resistance and drug-resistant tuberculosis” (5/17).
