6 July, Geneva  “…..More than halfway to the 2015 deadline to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), major advances in the fight against poverty and hunger have begun to slow or even reverse as a result of the global economic and food crises, a progress report by the United Nations has found. The assessment, launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in Geneva, warns that, despite many successes, overall progress has been too slow for most of the targets to be met by 2015….”

[EQ] Innovations in Global Health in the New Political Era

GLOBAL HEALTH GOVERNANCE

Volume II, Issue 2: Fall 2008 / Spring 2009 - http://www.ghgj.org

Innovations in Global Health in the New Political Era
Guest Editors: Devi Sridhar and Larry Gostin

Introduction
- Devi Sridhar is a Fellow in Politics at All Souls College, Oxford, and a Visiting Fellow at the Munich Centre on Governance.
- Larry Gostin is Linda D. and Timothy J. O’Neill Professor of Global Health Law, Faculty Director,
  O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law,Georgetown University, and Professor, The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

“…….With the cyclical nature of priority-setting, it seems unlikely that global health will be able to retain its momentum into the future leading to a general feeling that this is the “moment of opportunity” or “tipping point” to push forward key reforms and changes in the global health architecture. In addition, a new Administration in the United States provides hope that there is a chance to reinvigorate multilateralism in health, for example through the World Health Organization.

Given the major opportunities this particular time in history offers, we decided to focus this special issue on “innovations in health in a new political era.” We invited eight of the top thinkers in global health to articulate what the key challenges in global health are, and put forward their vision on what the world might and could look like in the new political era…..”
