Women political leaders as champions for testing worldwide

Tuesday, June 9, 2020

What will the future in front of us look like? When will we get out of this epochal pandemic? What are the best practices to achieve so?

Have you ever asked yourself how can the global community make better decisions and promote best practices surrounding COVID-19 testing and de-confinement worldwide? 

Women political leaders have already alerted the global community to the vital importance of testing and its role in containing the dire humanitarian and economic repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

By taking informed decisions accounting for both health and economic considerations, these women leaders have enabled their countries to re-open their economies, education systems and public life.

Their insights and views contribute to international discussions regarding the future of testing, in addition to acting as the first line of defence against COVID-19. 

To further benefit from their knowledge, the G20 Health and Development Partnership, Women Political Leaders (WPL), and FIND, convenor of the global testing community, have joined forces to bring together women scientific, global health, and political leaders to help inform key decisions around testing to exit COVID-19.
