The COVID-19 pandemic is a global threat and has a disproportionate impact on Fragile Countries, particularly those affected by conflicts, which are already the farthest left behind. The g7+ members issued a joint Statement of Solidarity and Cooperation asking for immediate actions to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on people in Fragile Countries with vulnerable communities, Internally Displaced People (IDPs), and refugees. 

This conference explored why national efforts have to be matched by international cooperation and solidarity to a successful fight against COVID-19 as well as to a fast-track vaccination of the world population, with a particular emphasis in countries affected by conflict and violence.

This global event counted with the participation of 19 speakers from 13 countries, including current and former members of governments, multilateral entities, academia, the private sector, media and civil society.
