Health Ministers

In order to deliver meaningful change and improvements in pandemic preparedness, the Health Track, led by the Department for Health and Social Care, focuses on the themes of:

  • global health security
  • anti-microbial resistance
  • digital health
  • clinical trials in the development of vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the importance of continued multilateral collaboration on global health issues. The UK G7 Presidency provides an important opportunity for the G7 to provide leadership in learning from the current pandemic and seeking to prevent a similar crisis happening again.

Following the G7 Health Ministerial meeting in Oxford, UK and virtually, on 3 - 4 June 2021, Health ministers reaffirmed the importance of international collaboration on health, in the context of a significant global crisis.
