Global Health has been part of Germany’s and Japan’s G20 presidencies and both countries have adopted global health strategies. What has been achieved at the 2019 G20 Osaka Summit and what remains as outstanding issues?
Against this background the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB), the Global Health Centre/Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID, Geneva), and the Institute for Global Health Policy Research (iGHP)/National Center for Global Health and Medicine (NCGM, Tōkyō), in cooperation with the World Health Summit, are organizing this symposium on the roles of Germany and Japan in global health on 25 October 2019 at the JDZB.
The symposium will reflect on impulses given by the 2019 G20 Osaka Summit, ask how Germany and Japan can promote Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and in which areas both countries can collaborate to achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). After the first symposium held in Berlin in 2017 and the follow-up symposium held in Tokyo in 2018, the role of the private sector in promoting UHC will also be discussed.
The symposium is a Satellite Event of the World Health Summit 2019.
