The WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Principals of the signatory agencies; ministers and high-level representatives from several member states will be participating in a virtual launch of the first progress report of the Global Action Plan for Healthy Lives and Well-being for All (GAP), which was launched at the United Nations General Assembly in September 2019.

The progress report covers the first 8 months of implementation since its launch and outlines progress made by partner agencies in moving from the key commitments made in the GAP – Engage, Accelerate, Align, Account – to action.

Building on existing collaborations, the agencies are also committed to leveraging the Global Action Plan to fill in gaps and add value to existing global, regional and national coordination mechanisms in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The report captures and highlights case stories from five countries.
