Spain hosts COVID-19 Global Action Plan High-Level Meeting

On September 5-6, 2022, the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation (MAEC) organized a High-Level Meeting of the Global Action Plan against COVID-19 in Madrid.

The Global Action Plan (GAP) High-Level Meeting, which was mainly aimed at advancing global efforts to end the COVID-19 pandemic, gathered senior representatives from 35 countries and multilateral organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO), the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the Red Cross, the Global Network for Academic Public Health (GNAPH), the Spanish Medicines Agency (AEMPS), the European Commission, and the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal).

With the aim of joining forces and improving international coordination to overcome the pandemic collectively, GAP was created as a follow-up to the “Global Summit on COVID-19," hosted by the United States in September 2021.
