Cut credit rating of states underinvesting in health - WHO

Mario Monti, a former Italian Prime Minister who chairs the Pan-European Commission on Health and Sustainable Development, told Reuters he would like the G20 to set up a Global Health Board to address financial stability risks from healthcare failures.

Health threats could be translated into financial risks, in a process similar to that used in climate policy, Monti said.

Leaders of the world's twenty largest economies meet on Friday (May 21) in Rome to discuss how to tackle the coronavirus emergency and to prevent major health crises in the future.
