Upcoming Event: “What’s happening to Development Assistance for Health as the MDG deadline approaches?”

“What’s happening to Development Assistance for Health as the MDG deadline approaches?”

Thursday, January 19, 2012 from 10:30 to noon

Global Health Council

1111 19th St. NW Washington, DC 20036

Featuring Dr. Christopher Murray of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation

The speakers will analyze current trends in public and private financing of health programs worldwide and discuss findings from IHME’s just published policy report “Financing Global Health 2011: Continued Growth as MDG Deadline Approaches.” This rare gathering of accomplished health financing experts will explore:

  • How the economic slowdown is influencing the rate of growth in DAH
  • Which channels of assistance are increasing health spending and which are cutting back
  • Whether funding for specific health focus areas — such as HIV/AIDS, non-communicable diseases, and maternal, newborn, and child health – are thriving or faltering
  • How the distribution of DAH across countries corresponds with disease burden
  • How developing country governments respond with their own health funding to increases and decreases in DAH

Speakers:

  • Dr. Christopher J.L. Murray, Director, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, University of Washington
  • Dr. Michael Hanlon, Senior Lecturer, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, University of Washington
  • Dr. Cristian Baeza, Director of Health, Nutrition, and Population, World Bank

Please join us for this timely and important discussion about the shifts in development assistance for health and how this may affect progress to reach the MDG targets as the 2015 deadline draws near.
