Reflections on the Second Global Covid-19 Summit
Please join the CSIS Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security on Wednesday, May 18, from 3:30-4:30pm ET, for an important virtual event to examine the outcomes of the Second Global Covid-19 Summit. The panel will feature Raj Panjabi, Senior Director for Global Health Security & Biodefense at the White House National Security Council, Elizabeth Cameron, Senior Advisor for Global Health Security & Biodefense at the White House National Security Council, and CSIS Commission co-chairs Julie Gerberding, CEO of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, and Susan Brooks, former U.S. Representative (IN-05). The discussion will be moderated by GHPC Director J. Stephen Morrison.
The Second Global Covid-19 Summit, scheduled for May 12, will be co-hosted by the United States and international partners representing regional and multilateral bodies: Belize, as CARICOM Chair; Germany, holding the G7 Presidency; Indonesia, holding the G20 Presidency; and Senegal as African Union Chair. The Summit marks a critical moment to reinvigorate multilateral support for the global Covid response as political and financial attention dwindles. The panel discussion will focus on the outcomes of the Summit, including the commitments that are brought forward, opportunities and gaps, and whether the Summit will help renew a multilateral pandemic response.
This event is made possible by the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
