Blog: Not Much Focus on Global Health at U.N., G20 Meetings

October 2, 2009

Though "much ground" was covered at the recent U.N. General Assembly and the meeting of the G20, "[u]nfortunately, global health was not a focal point of the leaders' discussions, particularly at the G20 Summit," the Global Health Council's "Blog 4 Global Health" writes. But according to the blog, the next meeting "originally planned as a G8, will include a second meeting with all the nations that comprise the G20," including China, India and Brazil. "Though these transitional countries have growing economies, they face tremendous health challenges -- AIDS, maternal mortality and child health among them. This might create an opportunity for engagement in advancing the cause of global health at the next Summit, which will be held in Canada" (Flores, 9/25).
