PLOS Article Examines Investments Required To Achieve ‘Grand Convergence’ In Global Health

PLOS ONE: Achieving a “Grand Convergence” in Global Health: Modeling the Technical Inputs, Costs, and Impacts from 2016 to 2030
Colin F. Boyle, Arian Hatefi, Solange Madriz, and Nicole Santos of the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and Carol Levin of the University of Washington examine the investments required by 2030 to achieve an integrated approach to reduce infectious diseases and child and maternal mortality. The authors conclude, “Key health outcomes in low- and low-middle income countries can significantly converge with those of wealthier countries by 2030, and the notion of a ‘grand convergence’ may serve as a unifying theme for health indicators in the [Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)]” (10/9).
