In a post in the BMJ Group Blogs, Richard Smith, former BMJ editor and director of the United Health Group’s chronic disease initiative, summarizes a recent report from the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health that proposes a “grand convergence” to bring the global health community together to prevent 10 million avoidable deaths per year by 2035. He highlights comments made by Larry Summers, co-chair of the commission, and others at a London meeting launching the report (12/5).
