CDC Perspective Examines ‘New Global Health’ Era

In a perspective published in the CDC’s “Emerging Infectious Diseases” journal last week, researchers reflect on a “new global health” era, which they write “requires broader engagement by health organizations and all countries for the objectives of health equity, access, and coverage as priorities beyond the Millennium Development Goals are set.” The researchers examine the complexities of global health architecture, highlight the “overlapping themes [that] determine global health action and prioritization,” and conclude with recommendations for moving forward (8/8).
