The Integrated Holistic Health Summit of Civil 20 (C20), one of the official Engagement Groups of the G20, is going to be held at Amrita Hospital, Faridabad, on April 8-9, 2023.

Several key dignitaries would be present during the inaugural ceremony on April 8. These include Dr Mansukh L Mandaviya, Minister of Health and Family Welfare; Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Minister of Haryana; Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, Secretary, Ministry of AYUSH; Anil Vij, Haryana's Minister for Home, Health and Medical Education and Research; Ranjit Singh, Haryana’s Minister for Energy; Shri Krishan Pal Gurjar, Union Minister of State for Power and Heavy Industries; and Rajesh Nagar, MLA, Tigaon, Faridabad.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organisation, will address the delegates virtually. Former Health Ministers from countries such as Argentina, Rwanda, and Malawi, will also be present at the Summit. World-renowned spiritual leader and humanitarian Mata Amritanandamayi (Amma) is the Chair of C20.

During the inaugural ceremony, the dignitaries will also release two new platforms, named Digital Shiksha for Advanced Clinical Capacity Learning (DiShA) and We Are with You. “We are With You” is a public portal that provides informative content such as videos, articles, testimonials, contact details for public and private mental health organisations, helpline numbers, discussion forums, and blogs in English and major regional languages, aimed at connecting people with the mental healthcare they need.

Across two days of the summit, delegates from more than 700 CSOs, health professionals, educators, and leaders from across the public health landscape would participate in policy meetings, discussions, and workshops to formulate policies that support global health and wellbeing.

The sessions would focus on seven key areas of public health including mental health, nutrition, women’s and children’s health, elderly care, holistic health approaches, One Health, and the reduction of non-communicable diseases.

Coordinator of C20 Working Group on Integrated Holistic Health, Dr Priya Nair of Amrita Hospital, said, "Global health is a critical focus area of C20. The covid pandemic highlighted the limitations of the existing healthcare systems worldwide. To address these gaps and inequities, it is important to take a holistic approach to health, including its physical, emotional, environmental, and social dimensions. We need to find solutions for better access to healthcare, especially in lower and middle-income countries, and enable people to lead a healthy lifestyle. Traditional medicine systems like Ayurveda can play a significant role in making holistic health an integral part of the global healthcare system."

The G20 (Group of 20) is a forum comprising 19 countries and the European Union. It works to address major issues related to the global economy. C20 provides a platform for Civil Society Organisations (CSO) around the world to voice people’s aspirations to the world leaders in G20.
