Global health

10 June 2008

The national science academies of the G8 nations and Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa have signed a statement on global health.  The statement calls on world leaders, particularly those meeting at the G8 Summit in Toyako, Hokkaido, in July 2008 to:

  • Increase international collaboration, capacity building and technology transfer to achieve results. 
  • Provide a greater commitment to continued global monitoring, communication and sharing of information on all health-related issues as well as more effort to identify the major challenges in chronic and infectious diseases, as a basis for global collaboration on research and on disease management. 
  • Provide a greater commitment to evidence based health and science policy making.
