"This meeting is about expanding and enhancing our shared efforts to defeat Covid-19, building out from previous gatherings of world leaders and ministers in fora like the G7, G20, and Act Accelerator to rally civil society, NGOs, philanthropists, and industry along with world leaders and align on a common vision for defeating Covid-19 together," Psaki said.
According to her, during the virtual meeting, discussions will be held on four topics:
- Vaccinate the World by enhancing equitable access to vaccines and getting shots in arms.
- Save Lives Now by solving the oxygen crisis, and making tests, therapeutics and PPE more available.
- Build Back Better by establishing a sustainable health security financing mechanism, and global leadership for emerging threats.
- Calling the World to Account by aligning around targets, tracking progress, and supporting one another in fulfilling our commitments.
