CFR Expert Discusses CoC Report Card On International Cooperation, Prospects For Global Health

Council on Foreign Relations: Apathy Continues to Plague Global Health
Terrence Mullan, assistant director for international institutions and global governance at the Council on Foreign Relations, discusses the Council of Councils (CoC) Report Card on International Cooperation, which evaluates efforts to address the world’s most pressing global challenges. Mullan provides a summary of the report card’s results for 2018, opportunities for 2019, and recommendations moving forward and writes, “For now, it appears that in a world awash in troubles, nothing less than catastrophe will spur policymakers to forceful action on global health. Unfortunately, with countless health crises already simmering, concerted action could come too late to prevent local crises from becoming global emergencies” (7/25).

The KFF Daily Global Health Policy Report summarized news and information on global health policy from hundreds of sources, from May 2009 through December 2020. All summaries are archived and available via search.
