Putting the Focus on Prevention in Our Systems for Health
World Resilience Summit is the latest initiative taken by the World Climate Foundation with the purpose of accelerating solutions for preparedness and prevention of future pandemics by establishing a public-private dialogue beyond the health sector. The Summit will support the 76th World Health Assembly’s pandemic treaty agenda of prevention, preparedness and risk management by raising awareness of common health security challenges and engaging relevant stakeholders.
World Resilience Summit provides a crucial stakeholder engagement and networking platform for high-level announcements, thought leadership and best practices to create more awareness and address the lack of collaborative health security risk-specific solutions to create resilient health systems while following the One Health approach and strategies on a global level.
This Summit, taking place alongside the 76th World Health Assembly on 24 May 2023, at the Campus Biotech in Geneva – the global hub for health – will highlight cross-sectoral dialogue and solutions complementing the pandemic treaty and aligned with the One Health approach.
The current pandemic has proven that despite a more-than-ever globalised world and an unprecedented level of cooperation on global issues, the risk of pandemics and potential consequences have been severely neglected and will prove an even larger challenge in the future if not properly tackled. COVID-19 has demonstrated how our environment and health are interlinked while disrupting industries across the globe in ways no one had anticipated.
World Resilience Summit has been established by the World Climate Foundation as a response to the the existing shortfalls in prevention, coordination and mobilisation of resources to tackle existing and emerging health challenges, such as infectious diseases and health impacts of climate change.
