Pandemic Convention with Barbara Stocking, Chair of the Panel for a Global Public Health Convention

Today we will be discussing with Barbara Stocking, Chair of the Panel for a Global Public Health Convention (PGPHC), the need of creating a global instrument to build a robust global public health system. Over the past 2 years, Club de Madrid (CdM) has worked with the PGPHC to prioritise the reform of the global public health system to ensure a global health architecture capable of preventing future pandemics, while also supporting the recommendations of the Independent Panel for Pandemic Prevention and Response (IPPPR), the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB), and others. Specifically, CdM and the PGPHC focused their advocacy on the need for a global treaty, convention, or international agreement and brought this to the decision-making levels in the UN system.
