In this key note talk Dr Zeke Emanuel (Professor of Bioethics, National Institute of Health, Washington, USA) looks at relevant data about diseases causing mortality in the developing world. He also outlines what the global community should be doing to improve upon the current situation.
This lecture was filmed at an event called: 'Engaging in global health: Controversies and solutions'.
RSM Event Description:
"The challenges of global health often seem to defy our best efforts to solve them. We know they cannot be solved within a purely medical model - issues of poverty, of education and of governance are often more important than medicine as such. The global community has shown some determination to improve the health of the poorest in the developing world, with staging posts along the way such as Alma Ata, the Millennium Goals and, here in the UK, the Crisp Report.
Many professionals from the health sector would like to engage in some way, but often ask whether past efforts have been effective? Has aid sometimes been misdirected? If so, what sorts of interventions work and why? What is cost effective? Where is the evidence? What should I do?"
Date of Lecture: 14th March 2011.
