Investment, Recognizing Health As Human Right Will Help Build Sustainable National, Global Health Systems

Project Syndicate: Three Global Health Threats
Jaime Sepulveda, professor and executive director of Global Health Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco

“…The world is facing a three-prong health challenge: We must build sustainable national and global health systems that can respond quickly and effectively to crises like Ebola; eliminate or control infectious diseases; and address the quietly rising epidemic of chronic NCDs. To succeed on all three fronts, we need sustained investment in health infrastructure, management, and personnel. Equality is key. … In formulating the post-2015 development goals, world leaders must remember that health is a fundamental human right” (1/28).
