G20 Health Officials Meet in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES G20 health ministers and high officials kicked off a meeting on Thursday aimed to tackle child malnourishment, among other issues, in the Argentine resort city of Mar del Plata.

I hope we have a very productive work day and that we can keep working together to strengthen our health systems, Argentine Health Minister Adolfo Rubinstein said during the opening ceremony held at a local hotel.

Among the 30 delegation heads attending the event were US Health and Human Services chief Alex Azar, Brazilian Health Minister Gilberto Occhi and European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Vytenis Andriukaitis.

The program will include discussions regarding global health policies and matters related to antimicrobial resistance, child obesity and the strengthening of national health systems.

The world leaders will then take part in a crisis simulation that will put the ministers in a fictional scenario where an E. Coli outbreak that is resistant to antibiotics spreads across borders.

The G20 is an international forum for the 19 most developed countries plus the European Union.

Argentina which was chosen to preside the event this year has hosted several ministerial meetings and civil society discussion forums throughout the year leading up to the Nov. 30-Dec. 1 summit of the heads of state and government in Buenos Aires.

The members of the forum represent two thirds of the world population and 75 percent of international trade.
