Examining World Bank President’s Vision For Health, Development

Writing in the Center for Strategic & International Studies’ (CSIS) “Smart Global Health” blog, Todd Summers, a senior adviser with the CSIS Global Health Policy Center examines World Bank President Jim Yong Kim’s evolving position on health, poverty alleviation and development, highlighting Kim’s “emphasis on accountability for results, and using data to drive investments.” Summers provides a list of “[c]ritical next steps” for Kim and the World Bank, and he writes, “Most importantly, we need the World Bank fully (re)engaged on health, and so it’s good to hear Dr. Kim making clear that this is his intention” (5/23).
