Global Health ‘Convergence’ Depends On Political Will, Shifting Roles Of Health Aid

Center for Global Development’s “Global Health Policy Blog”: To Achieve Global Health ‘Convergence,’ an Evolving Role for Health Aid
Rachel Silverman, senior policy analyst at CGD, writes, “Last week, CGD welcomed the [Lancet Commission on Investing in Health’s] two lead authors — Lawrence H. Summers (also the chair of CGD’s Board of Directors) and Dean Jamison — to share their thoughts on the future of health investments for [‘grand convergence’ between poor and rich countries], based in part on their recent paper in The Lancet.” Silverman discusses her takeaways from their remarks, including increasing political will and evolving roles for health aid, from country-level to global-level (10/27).
