Why is the G20 Getting Interested in Health?
Apr 11, 2017 / Auditorium A1B, Maison de la paix, Geneva
Graduate Institute Geneva Health has so far not been on the G20's agenda, but this year – under the German presidency – there will be a health ministers meeting and health will be part of the overall G20 summit statement. Is the G20, which was created for global financial governance reasons, an appropriate forum to get health on the global political agenda? By discussing health, is the G20 in competition with WHO or can it support WHO? Are the health priority areas chosen by the German G20 presidency the most important? What are the dynamics created once a policy area is chosen to be considered by G20? With Ilona Kickbusch, Adjunct Professor, Interdisciplinary Programmes.
