Global Health Summit: launch of a consultation for stronger health preparedness and response worldwide

In the run-up to the Global Health Summit on 21 May 2021, the European Commission and the Italian G20 Presidency will host an online consultation for the scientific community and civil society organisations tomorrow, on 20 April. The Global Health Summit aims to develop a ‘Rome Declaration’ with principles that can guide multilateral cooperation and action to prevent future global health crises. Participants will in particular discuss how to enhance global cooperation, strengthen public health capacities and boost health security preparedness and response worldwide. A report outlining the findings of the consultation will feed into the preparation of the Rome Declaration principles. President von der Leyen will address the participants before the start of the discussion. The consultation can be followed via livestream from 12:30 to 15:30 CET.
