15 November 2022: Launch of G2H2 report “Financial Justice for Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response

Geneva Press Club and Zoom webinar

The report

The report “Financial Justice for Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response” will be launched by the Geneva Global Health Hub (G2H2) on 15 November in Geneva. The report highlights the shortcomings of the international community in redirecting finance to support public health, including the robust funding of pandemic prevention preparedness and response.

While colossal wealth is potentially available to invest on global public health and managing any future pandemics, it is in the wrong hands. The pandemic emergency, with its associated socioeconomic and environmental crises, has revealed that the world is at a critical moment and that business as usual cannot be the way forward. The crisis has “opened a window for a radical redirection” (WHO Council on the Economics of Health for All) which may not be missed: The report by G2H2 proposes to rethink health through an economic and financial justice lens. 

The launch event

In a public event at the Geneva Press Club, on 15 November 2022, G2H2 released the report ‘Financial Justice for Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response’, bringing a deeper understanding of the unspoken tension between the current international financial architecture and health financing models in the post COVID-19 scenario.
