Global humanitarian crises, new political leadership in the U.S. and elsewhere, and a climate of fiscal austerity are reshaping the landscape for global health financing. In this context, it faces a challenging and uncertain future.
On Thursday, April 20 from 2:30-4 p.m. ET, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Center for Strategic and International Studies will host a policy briefing to discuss the current state of global health financing and the future landscape, with a panel of leading experts.
Joseph Dieleman, Assistant Professor at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, will present new findings on financing for global health from IHME’s latest report and two new articles in The Lancet, followed by a discussion with panelists including Tim Evans, Senior Director of Health, Nutrition and Population at the World Bank Group; J. Stephen Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center; and Christopher J.L. Murray, Professor and Director at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. Jen Kates, Vice President and Director of Global Health and HIV Policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation, will moderate.
This event is co-sponsored by CSIS and the Kaiser Family Foundation. It is made possible by the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
