G-20 leaders have adopted a joint declaration calling for the establishment of “global digital health networks” that build on existing digital COVID-19 vaccine passports.
The G20 is officially over, and in doing so the G20 has put out a PDF document named – “2022 G20 Bali Update on the G20 Action Plan on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and G20 Development Commitments.”
This document tracks the progress and status of active G20 development commitments. In addition to ensuring accountability and transparency, the Bali Update also helps future G20 presidencies optimize the G20’s contribution to SDGs and G20 development commitments.
What’s in it? From page 38:
In the section Collective and Concrete Actions by Working Groups and Workstreams Contributing to the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, specifically under SDS Global Health, the following passage can be found:
“Acknowledge the importance of shared technical standards to facilitate seamless international travel, interoperability, and recognizing digital and non-digital solutions aligned with countries’ relevant legal provisions including those used for COVID-19 proof of vaccination or verification of tests as well as the IHR (2005) which provides an overarching legal framework for addressing public health emergencies that have the potential to cross borders”
