The Princeton Seminar on Global Health convenes members of academe, the private sector, civil society and concerned members of the community to explore issues around improving global health quality, equity and access in a multi-disciplinary, multi-sectoral context.

Please join us for a lively conversation on health security in the Mekong featuring  two experts from the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS): J. Stephen Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director, the Global Health Policy Center, and J. Christopher Daniel, Senior Associate, Global Health Policy Center. Jeffrey L. Sturchio (Rabin Martin) will moderate the discussion, and Adel Mahmoud (Princeton University) will be the respondent.

In opening the discussion, Morrison will speak to how health figures in the complex, turbulent transition under way in Myanmar, drawing from the recently published CSIS report, Rehabilitating Health in the Myanmar Transition, including steps the U.S. can take to strengthen its health approaches. Daniel will speak to the threat to Myanmar, the broader Mekong region, and beyond of rising artemisinin resistant malaria, based on a recently published CSIS companion study he authored, Drug-Resistant Malaria: A Generation of Progress in Jeopardy. Together Morrison and Daniel will discuss how geopolitical factors and public heath demands have raised the stakes for the United States in the Mekong, and how the US is to engage with a complex mix of national institutions, private sector interests, international organizations and civil groups to see progress and avert bad outcomes.
