Sunway University is thrilled to share the remarkable efforts of two outstanding individuals, Professor Elil Renganathan of Sunway University, and Tan Sri Dr Jemilah Mahmood of the Sunway Centre for Planetary Health, who have made invaluable contributions to a groundbreaking document initiated by the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law (O’Neill Institute) in collaboration with the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) and the University of Cape Town (UCT).
In an era where global health is of paramount importance, these two experts have played a pivotal role in convening leading authorities from diverse fields such as global health, law, human rights, biomedical science, and many more. Together, they worked tirelessly to address one of the most pressing challenges of our time: the development and deployment of emergency countermeasures, including vaccines, diagnostics, and treatments.
This document, which brings together experts from every World Health Organization (WHO) region, is designed to inform the WHO, policymakers, Member States, and the public as they negotiate agreements critical to our global health infrastructure. Professor Elil and Professor Jemilah's contributions have been instrumental in shaping the major themes outlined in the report, providing crucial insights for decision-makers and the international community.
Their work exemplifies the spirit of collaboration, innovation, and dedication needed to address the challenges facing our world today. Let's celebrate and acknowledge the contributions of Professor Elil and Professor Jemilah as they continue to make a positive impact on global health.
Please join us in congratulating them for their remarkable achievements!
