President Biden recently announced a new fund for global health threats and many advocates and activists are debating whether the world really needed a new fund or whether they should rather build on existing mechanisms such as the Global Fund.

Dr Christoph Benn, JLI’s Center for Health Diplomacy Director, was on a C20 panel discussion on “Fund creation tiredness: what is the added value of a #GlobalHealth Threats Fund?”

In this session, they covered topics such as:

  • What is the added value of a global heath treat fund?
  • What are the standards that we, as community members, request from any newly created instrument?
  • How should the newly discussed mechanism be financed and who should host the new instrument?

Here’s a recording of the C20 Summit:
