JLI and UNITE establish a partnership to promote a digital agenda for innovation with a particular focus on comprehensive health services for the most marginalized and vulnerable populations.
The UNITE Global Summit: Virtual 2020 aims to commit, inspire, and empower policy makers towards the achievement of the UN SDGs over the next decade, while building a roadmap on clear policy actions to eliminate the threat posed by communicable diseases. This alignment of a common vision culminated in the signing of UNITE’s 2020 Declaration–calling on parliaments and governments to uphold the SDGs and their commitments to ending infectious diseases as a global health threat, in the midst and aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
JLI’s Dr Christoph Benn participated on a panel discussion on “How can innovation aid the global health response? Covid-19 and beyond?” You can watch below:
