Global Solutions - Moving forward during COVID19 while implementing SDG3 Good Health & Wellbeing World Health Innovation Summit
Background:The Global Solutions Summit 2021 took place on May 27-28, 2021.You can watch recordings from all sessions below. The Summit supports the T20 and G20 under the Italian G20 Presidency. It brings together top researchers, policymakers, business leaders and civil society representatives in a renowned global problem-solving process. It focused heavily on a Great Realignment in the post-COVID world, in the spirit of recoupling economic progress with social prosperity and environmental sustainability. Panelists:James Sanderson, CEO, National Academy Social Prescribing, Director of Personalised Care, NHS England and NHS Improvement, UKRoland Schatz, CEO and founder, UNGSII FoundationPäivi Sillanaukee, Ambassador for Health and Wellbeing, Ministry for Foreign Affairs, FinlandModerator:- Gareth Presch, CEO, World Health Innovation SummitSession description:The current healthcare systems tend to be based predominantly on a sick-care model, the system is essentially one that waits until we have fallen ill. We face unprecedented challenges with global staff shortages predicted to be 18m by 2030 (BMJ). Healthcare costs have been rapidly rising over the past few decades. This unsustainable demand and increase in costs can be largely attributed to the growth in the human population along with a diverse population that results in higher incidence of chronic and multiple conditions. As well as this, a one-size-fits-all approach to health doesn’t work. Both consumer preferences for convenience and affordability are shifting, as well as demand for a more efficient, personalised delivery model is growing.Additionally, Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has dramatically unveiled the health inequalities that exist in societies across the world, alongside the fragile state of the world’s health.World Health Innovation Summit - platform for sustainable development UNGSII SDG Cities programme - Social Prescribing Alliance and the UK’s commitment to support -https://www.gspalliance.comObjectives:We believe the opportunity exists to create a new model of health and wellbeing that creates value based on prevention, early intervention and using different resources. The aim is to enable people and communities to thrive and improve their health and wellbeing, support existing health services, create new and meaningful jobs while supporting the implementation of the 17 sustainable development goals.Literature:Policy briefs:Global strategies to ensure equitable, universal and high-quality healthcareInvolvement of vulnerable communities in the design and implementation ofhealth responsesNew initiatives and mechanisms to promote more coordinated responses toglobal health threatsFurther readings:The World Health Innovation Summit (WHIS) platform for sustainable development.
