Supporting and managing global health

Around the world, health is among the most important issue facing individuals, communities, governments, and countries as a whole. While there are increases in policy debates and developments in medical research, there are still many actions that can be taken to improve the picture of health at a global level. Following an event at Columbia University, we sat down with Chelsea Clinton and Devi Sridhar, authors of Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why, for a video series to discuss the current public health landscape regarding inequalities, new innovation, philanthropy, and financing.

Are there rich countries that fail and poor countries that succeed in managing health?

What are some exciting innovations in global health happening today that should be better known by the general public?

How will the next generation of philanthropists effect meaningful change on a global level?

Are there organizations or microlenders that individuals can feel good about supporting?

    Great interview! I may say that there is a misunderstanding of educational purposes. poor countries have a strong family education about health and healthy foods. Rich countries are more permissive!
