What's next for the G20? Investing in health and development

Chatham House, London

This conference will explore the perspectives of leading states of the G20, its evolving mandate, membership and priorities, and more specifically the group's interest in global development and health. It will revisit the role and legacy of the G8 in what is quickly becoming a 'G20 world'.

  • What are the G20's current mandate and priorities?
  • What are the member state interests in global health and development?
  • What is the legacy of the G8 on health and what pledges remain unfulfilled?
  • How can the G20's role on these issues be developed further?
