• Indonesia's Widodo Seeks Creation Of New Global Health Agency
Indonesian President Joko Widodo says his country, which holds the presidency of the G20 this year, will push for the creation of a new global health agency to deal with crises like COVID-19.

Speaking at the virtual Davos forum on Thursday, Widodo said the World Health Organization had showed "limited capacity" to deal with the pandemic.

He said the envisioned agency will help strengthen the world's "health resilience" and make the global health system more inclusive.

It will be tasked with mobilizing health resources, including for financing health emergencies, purchasing vaccines, medicines and medical devices," according to Widodo.

The president called on major economies to co-finance the initiative with the goal of reaching an agreement by the end of the year.
