“The Hiroshima G7 Global Health Task Force, a multistakeholder, cross-disciplinary group convened to guide G7 Summit talks on the global health agenda and organised by the Japan Center for International Exchange, identified two global health challenges that G7 leaders must urgently address. The first is to advance the resilience of health systems so they can flexibly tackle public health emergencies and multiple threats to health. The second is to enhance global solidarity by transforming and strengthening the global health architecture in the context of geopolitical tensions and shifts. As the Hiroshima G7 Global Health Task Force, we offer the following key recommendations for G7 action to address these two challenges through a human security approach and a transformation of global health architecture.”
The Lancet published comments from JCIE’s Hiroshima G7 Global Health Task Force, outlining the Task Force’s recommendations for tackling some of the main challenges in global health: advancing the resilience of health systems to address public health emergencies and enhancing global solidarity by transforming the global health architecture within the context of current geopolitical tensions.
