At their Washington Summit in 2008, G20 political leaders highlighted child survival, maternal mortality and the response to HIV, tuberculosis and malaria epidemics among their commitments. Yet, just six months later, in London in April 2009, health was hardly in evidence. As the G20 leaders prepare to gather in Pittsburgh, it is worth asking: Should health matter to the economic and environmental agenda outlined by the G20? The answer should be a resounding yes. This seminar will reflect on key issues on the global health agenda, including women and girls, and the challenges of maintaining momentum during economic crisis.
