BU To Host Lessons Learned from a Life in WHO: Governance and How We Generate Global Health on Tuesday, Sept. 25

The content and scope of public health have changed significantly over the last 40 years. The World Health Organization is uniquely positioned to make a difference in the way the world deals with development, health, and well-being. But neither WHO’s strong mandate nor its accumulation of robust evidence on the determinants of health are sufficient to inspire political commitment and action. Agis D. Tsouros will talk about insights and lessons learned from his career with WHO, focusing on answering four key questions: What are the imperatives of public health in the 21st century? What are the challenges facing public health in making an impact today? How can policies at all levels of government be shaped and informed on evidence of what works? How can public health be reconfigured for a new age?

 

Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 4:30 to 6 p.m.
