The Dutch Global Health Strategy aims to offer a strategic and coherent framework including clear priorities to effectively contribute to global health. The strategy will be based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and existing international human rights frameworks. It is important that the Dutch efforts in global health is demand-driven and concurrently take into account the unique expertise that the Netherlands has to offer.
To foster an inclusive process and acquire insights in priorities to take, the Ministry of Health, Sports and Welfare and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs organize a series of consultation sessions with national and international public and private institutions, academic and civil society organizations, youth representatives, southern and like-minded countries and program partners in parallel to the drafting process. In addition, this internet consultation is published to give other interested stakeholders the opportunity to provide input. Questions for input are organized around seven key areas, namely:
I. SDGs, human rights and diplomacy
II. Health systems strengthening
III. Pandemic preparedness and response
V. One Health/Health in all policies
VI. Sustainable financing
