Lav Agarwal stated, “India has garnered in-principal agreement to the three proposed priorities and seeks to build global convergence on an agile, aligned global health architecture.”

    The upcoming Health Working Group Meeting will see 180 members, 10 invited countries and 22 international organizations participating. The side event will focus on deliberating on frameworks for research development and innovation for the creation of a network that would leverage access across the world.
