Genomics is a highly important tool in achieving SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-being. In the context of UNGA76 ISC will convene this session focussed on research and policy priorities in the development of genomics and precision medicine as a driver of beneficial health outcomes for world citizens.
The session will bring together leaders from government, industry, and healthcare to share practical examples of how genomics is being utilised as a tool to deliver benefits to citizens and to share practical learnings that arise when undertaking research collaborations between various states and continents.
Genomics is a prime example of innovation, driven through international collaboration and hence an exemplary realization of SDG 17 – Partnerships to achieve the Goals.
Topics explored will include opportunities for the advancement of the field of genomics by ensuring diversity in genome research, the application of genomics in understanding the biological drivers of mental illness and policy priorities for genomics development globally.
