New Partnership Examines Role of Private Sector in Global Health
Late last year, the Princeton University's Global Health Program and the Center for Health and Wellbeing, co-convened with the global health strategy firm, Rabin Martin, the inaugural "Princeton Seminar on Global Health." The focus of this on-going Seminar program is to gather members of academia, 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.
“The Evolving Role of the Private Sector in Global Health,” was the focus of the panel discussion and featured Adel Mahmoud, senior policy analyst and lecturer with the rank of professor at the Woodrow Wilson School and in molecular biology; Curt Welling, president and chief executive officer of AmeriCares; and Derek Yach, senior vice president of the Vitality Group. Jeffrey L. Sturchio ’73, senior partner at Rabin Martin, served as moderator for the discussion.
The seminar was a preview to a series of events that will address global health policy questions among a diverse mix of discussants. The next seminar will feature Sir George Alleyne, director Emeritus of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and Tsung-Mei Cheng, health policy research analyst at the Woodrow Wilson School, in a panel on "Building a Multi-Sectoral Response to Non-Communicable Diseases around the Globe."
The upcoming seminar will take place on March 26, 2013; for details and to register please visit www.princeton.edu/globalhealth/events_archive/repository/03262013_seminar/.
