On participating in the World Health Summit, convened by the Italian presidency of the G20 and the European Commission, the president described as fundamental to guarantee equitable and supportive access to vaccines and medicines.

During his presentation, via video conference, the head of State pointed out the disproportionate negative impact on developing countries and the most vulnerable populations of the serious health, economic and social consequences caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, and advocated that scientific achievements should benefit everyone.

Equal access to the vaccines must be a priority for the States, as it is a necessary condition to overcome this pandemic and favor the effective enjoyment of the right to health, the president stated after insisting on the need to update the global health architecture in order to share knowledge and carry out joint research, among others.

Fernandez considered that redesigning the global health governance system is the starting point, noting that the pandemic is both a warning and an opportunity to move towards more equitable, more inclusive and fairer societies.

‘It is also an opportunity to redesign more supportive healthcare systems that guarantee the effective exercise of the right to health, with equity and quality in all countries,’ he concluded.

The Summit was jointly chaired in Rome by the President of the Italian Council of Ministers, Mario Draghi, and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.
