GLOBAL HEALTH ROUNDUP

PMNCH Searching for Civil Society or Youth Representatives for the GFF Investors Group

The Global Financing Facility (GFF) Investors Group regularly brings together key investors in reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH) and nutrition to strengthen partnerships and optimize country-level health financing. Investors include governments, civil society organizations, the private sector, UN agencies, Gavi, and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. A special selection committee, which includes the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH), is calling for applications for civil society and youth representatives for the GFF Investors Group. These representatives will play a critical role in ensuring that civil society and youth voices are captured in the content of the work produced by the GFF. Applications are due July 22.

Voice Your View to WHO on Primary Health Care

WHO wants to hear your views on primary health care (PHC) and how it can be addressed to meet everyone’s needs, ahead of the Global Conference on Primary Health Care (October 25 – 26). PHC, usually the first level of contact people have with the healthcare system, aims to provide comprehensive, accessible, community-based care that is tailored to fit the needs of the individual seeking care. WHO’s Draft Declaration, an update on the 40-year-old Alma Ata Declaration underlines the importance of PHC to achieve Universal Health Coverage. It has now reopened for public consultation to ensure inclusion of views from a broad range of stakeholders. The comment period will be open until July 22.

GHTC Urges Increased Investment in Research and Development for the GHSA

The Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC) is calling upon the global health community to join them in urging world leaders to include commitments to Research and Development (R&D) in the new 2019-2024 Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) framework, which is now in development. The former framework did not include an action package dedicated to improving R&D capacities in GHSA member countries. R&D is needed, now more than ever, to ensure the availability of vaccines, treatments, and other tools needed to stop an outbreak from becoming a deadly epidemic. The petition would pave the way for civil society to press world leaders for change as they convene in Bali for the 5th GHSA Ministerial Meeting in November 2018.
