The statement points out that while the G7 outcome documents provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary global health issues, it is not clear how the G7 intends to specifically contribute to these issues, and calls for the G7 to mention clearly about its concrete action plan in preparation for the G7 Hiroshima Leaders’ Summit. It also calls for more concrete policies on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), non-communicable diseases (NCDs), and other key global health issues.

Regarding pandemic prevention, preparedness and response (PPPR), the C7 Working Group also called for the G7 to strengthen responsible efforts to strengthen the manufacturing capacity of MCMs (Medical Countermeasures) and take comprehensive measures to ensure technology transfer for the developing countries for ensuring global equitable access to MCMs in the situation of emergency.
