New Delhi: The upcoming thirdrd health working group meeting, part of the G20 India Presidency, will center around global health priorities, said Lav Agarwal, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, said on Saturday.

The meeting, set to commence in Hyderabad from 4 June, aims to address the key concerns of the G20 Health Track, with a particular focus on research and innovation in the health sector, including pharmaceuticals, vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics.

Agarwal said the G20 Presidency presents a unique opportunity to voice the concerns of the Global South as the predecessor (Indonesia) and the successor (Brazil) of India in the G20 Troika both are developing countries which will further highlight and reinforce the challenges facing Global South.

He stated India’s G20 Presidency focuses on three priorities including health emergencies prevention, preparedness and response with a focus on anti-microbial resistance and one health framework, strengthening cooperation in the pharmaceutical sector with a focus on access and availability to safe, effective, quality and affordable medical countermeasures (vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics), and digital health innovations and solutions to aid universal health coverage and improve healthcare service delivery.

Agarwal stated that 180 members, 10 invited countries and 22 international organizations will be participating in this upcoming meeting. Apart from the main event, the side event will focus on deliberating on frameworks for research development and innovation for creation of network that would leverage access across the world.

Additionally, there will be also be a co-branded event on Global Vaccine Collaborative as well as visit to Genome Valley, showcasing India’s prowess in research and development and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
