16:30 - 18:00 hrs. CEST

The Secretary-General's report on "Using science, technology, and innovation to close the gap on Sustainable Development Goal 3, good health and well-being" focuses on three areas: primary health care, poverty-related diseases, and infectious disease outbreaks.

The report also includes scientific and technical innovations, well-established low-technology solutions, and organizational and social innovations applied to health care. It also calls the attention that new technological developments also raise critical concerns about privacy, security, the accuracy of artificial intelligence in health care, and the digital divide.

The Secretary-General Report's critical areas of policy consideration include investments in research, human capital and infrastructure, support for research and development commercialization, and a whole-of-government and multisectoral approach. The priority areas for consideration include supporting national innovation ecosystems, improving the accessibility of health innovations, and building and strengthening multilateral and multi-stakeholder platforms for cooperation, knowledge sharing, and standards-setting.

The objective of this panel is to contextualize the main areas of the report in the existing mechanisms, efforts and pandemic’s lessons learn on the implementation of the Agenda 2030 and its health-related SDGs.
