In April 2022, the Advisory Council on International Affairs (AIV) presented her advice ‘Fundament voor een Nederlandse mondiale gezondheidsstrategie’ – A Framework for a Dutch Global Health Strategy, to the Dutch Parliament Committee on Foreign Aid and Trade. The AIV advice included building blocks for a Dutch Global Health Strategy that stipulates three priorities: 1) health systems strengthening; 2) pandemic preparedness and response; 3) national and international coherence.

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.
