Pamela Das,Udani Samarasekera

The Lancet, Volume 378, Issue 9807, 3 December 2011


Available online at:

“......Reflecting on how health should position itself, in a very different world 10 years on, he adds: “10 years ago the CMH had its impact by showing how better outcomes could drive and protect economic growth.
Today, the situation is very different. No-one believes that more investment in health is going to help solve the banking or sovereign debt crises, stabilise food prices or redress the inequities of globalisation. At the same time, peoples health remains vitally important as a measure of the success of policies in all these areas.............”
