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 on “already stretched healthcare systems”; insect-borne diseases; and the emergence of public-private partnerships to deal with neglected tropical diseases.

According to the Financial Times, the “increasing convergence of interests” between developing countries and the developed world “means there now may be cautious hope for the future” (Greenhalgh, 9/15).
