Donors including the US and the European Union have pledged $1.1 billion in financing to help countries cope with future pandemics.

Indonesia, as this year’s host of the Group of 20 meetings, pushed the world’s biggest economies to create a global health fund that would aid nations struggling with the next global health crises, said Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati in a late Tuesday briefing.
