H20 Summit: “The Future of Global Health Diplomacy in a Changing World”

Must read

Under the theme “The Future of Global Health Diplomacy in a Changing World,” the Health 20 (H20) Summit will take place on 19–20 June 2024 at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

The pivotal two-day event will bring together over 150 distinguished guests and feature seven panels. Discussions will focus on the evolving role of global health diplomacy within the G20 and G7. Key topics include sustainable financing for global health, bridging the gap between investment and health communities, and introducing new global health initiatives.

The 2024 edition of the H20 Summit will also launch the Global Legislators’ report on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), authored by prominent parliamentarians and experts: former French Health Minister Professor Agnes Buzyn, Zambian National Assembly Member Hon. Dr Christopher Kalila, Dame Angela Eagle and former European Parliament advisor Francis Jacobs. The report will call for a more systematic and common approach in tackling AMR at global and national levels, with a key role for parliamentarians, to ensure that health remains a political priority.

The event programme can be found on the H20 website under this link: H20 Annual Summit | The future of global health.

About H20 Summit

The H20 Summit is an independent annual platform in support of the G20 and G7 Presidencies agendas and was launched in Geneva in 2018 by The G20 Health and Development Partnership’s Global Ambassadors and Member Organisations.

By providing an inclusive and collaborative platform between the traditional global health community and relevant sectors including the world of politics and finance, the discussions at the H20 summits help to create interdependencies and elevate global health challenges higher-up the political agendas of G20 policymakers and International Organizations. The H20 summits follow the vision that only in partnerships (SDG17) we can mobilize political action and ensure healthier and sustainable societies and economies to meet our United Nations 2030 targets and beyond.
