Financial Times Articles Examine Global Health Issues
The Financial Times‘ health section published several global health reports that “focus on the diseases and healthcare issues that affect millions but are often absent from the health debate in rich countries.”
The articles cover a variety of topics including: the global tuberculosis burden and disease-related stigma; healthcare in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq and South Africa; the effect of conflict onÂ “already stretched healthcare systems”;Â insect-borne diseases; and the emergence ofÂ public-private partnerships to deal withÂ neglected tropical diseases.
According to the Financial Times, the “increasing convergence of interests” betweenÂ developing countriesÂ and theÂ developed world “means there now may be cautious hope for the future” (Greenhalgh, 9/15).Â
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.
