The following is a series of videos (one on each chapter) on a new book recently released by the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Basically, the book looks at the global health accomplishments and challenges in Obama’s first term and makes recommendations for his second term. Based on the interview with Dr. Morrison, who wrote the introduction, it sounds like the book has a pro-administration tone, but it is sure to be an interesting read nonetheless. Following are the videos for each chapter (except for chapter 4, which for some reason is “private”).
In the new volume, Global Health Policy in the Obama Second Term, Dr. J. Stephen Morrison discusses major themes from his introductory chapter of Global Health Policy in the Second Obama Term.
