Global Health Priorities

With limited resources and unlimited global challenges in health care, how should the international community decide where to focus its attention? This session will examine and assess the global health care priorities selected by the noted Copenhagen Consensus, in which a panel of experts addressed ten global challenges through the lens of one question: "What would be the best ways of advancing global welfare, and particularly the welfare of developing countries, supposing that an additional $50 billion of resources were at governments' disposal?" Kate Roberts, David Bloom, Edward W. Scott, Jr. attempt to answer this question with moderator Charles G. Beever.

Festival: 2006
