As R4R Europe Hub, the STG supports the Commission by gathering evidence and research.

As Europe Hub, the STG supports the R4R Commission by gathering evidence and research to inform the reform for resilience agenda and prepare policy recommendations. The R4R Commission aims to:

  • identify key drivers of ‘health resilience',
  • make specific policy recommendations to enhance the institutional commitment to global health resilience as key to healthier growth,
  • develop a health resilience model and index to help drive cultural and policy changes.
