This position paper by MSF and VENRO (German NGO umbrella organization) builds on the former position paper “The G20 and Global Health”, published in summer 2016 ahead of the G20 summit in China. “…We continue to call on the G20 to include the following important global health issues in the agendas of the G20 development and health tracks: UHC and Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) as agreed in SDG3; global pandemic preparedness and response; antimicrobial resistance (AMR); research and development (R&D); ending the epidemics of neglected and poverty related diseases (NTDs, PRDs); and finishing the ‘unfinished business’ of the MDGs in the spirit of the SDG principle of ‘Leaving No One Behind’.”
