The European Commission and Italian G20 Presidency will host a Global Health Summit in Rome on 21 May 2021. The event is an opportunity for leaders to share lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, and develop and endorse a ‘Rome Declaration’ of Principles.
To support the development of these principles, a civil society consultation
will be held on 20 April 2021 with three guiding questions: (1) What is required at global, regional and national levels to ensure effective multilateral, multi-sectoral co-operation to prevent, prepare for and respond to global health crises?
(2) What is needed to secure in a sustainable way countries’ public health capacities and health systems’ preparedness and resilience in the face of future global health crises?
(3) How can the necessary resources, both domestic and global, be mobilised to address the challenges of sustainable health security preparedness and response at global, regional and country levels?
