The past decade has seen remarkable increases in the amount of funding for global health, and fundamental shifts in how that money is deployed. New institutions have emerged, and the "rules of the game" in international health have been rewritten. As global health has taken center stage in development aid policies, important questions have emerged about the appropriate role of public and private donors, the potential and limits of technology, and how priorities are established. In this talk, Ruth Levine will discuss the major forces in global health, and highlight some of the major issues and very tough choices now facing the international community. 

Open to the Public--no RSVP required.
