Minister of Finance Mohammed Aljadaan and Minister of Health Eng. Fahad Aljalajel yesterday took part in the G20 Joint Finance and Health Ministers Meeting held in Gandhinagar, India. Health ministers attended the meeting in person, while finance ministers participated via videoconference.


The ministers discussed the latest developments concerning the measures taken to address weaknesses and risks in preventing, preparing, and responding to pandemics, as well as coordination mechanisms among ministries of finance and health, and means to strengthen them.


They also reviewed a preliminary report on identifying funding gaps related to pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response, as well as the role of the Pandemic Fund, which was established based on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s proposal during its G20 Presidency in 2020.


The G20 Joint Finance and Health Ministers Meetings started in 2017, under the German G20 Presidency, in an attempt to strengthen coordination between the ministries of health and finance of G20 countries, given the funding gaps and the need to address challenges facing the international health landscape.
