The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Foundation and Adams House, Harvard College are pleased to announce a ground-breaking event with two of the world’s most respected experts in the practical economics of global health.
ACHIEVING GLOBAL HEALTH EQUITY IN A GENERATION:
A ROAD MAP WITH LARRY SUMMERS AND PAUL FARMER
Tuesday October 14, 2014 3-5
Science Center B, Harvard Yard
In a report published last fall in The Lancet, Global Health 2035, Larry Summers and 23 renowned economists and health experts claim that if first-world nations make the right investments in the health sector today, the globe could achieve universally low rates of infectious, maternal and child deaths by 2035. In other words, we could shift directions to achieve a “grand convergence” in global health within just one generation.
This moderated 45-minute discussion will explore the practicalities of this plan, followed by questions from the audience.
Tickets: free for students; $15 for alumni and the interested public.
