Transforming Global Health

Nordic Global Health Talks 7
The presentation is by Stefan Swartling Peterson, Karolinska Institute, Sweden

Tropical Medicine was the origin of today’s Global Health, which is now increasingly under debate. There is the “decolonize” debate, but also the failure to overcome the “implementation gap” - whereby a majority of maternal child deaths today could be prevented with existing knowledge. In this talk, Stefan Swartling Peterson will sketch the evolution of Global Health as a discipline, and share thoughts on what a transformation to “Glocal, Sustainable Health” could look like.
