Global Health ‘Nowhere To Be Found’ On G8 Agenda

In this post in the Center for Global Development’s (CGD) “Global Health Policy” blog, Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and a research fellow at the center, summarizes the history of G8 global health initiatives and examines why global health has been dropped from the G8 and G20 agendas, writing that “as we look to the U.S.-hosted G8 meeting in 2012, global health is still nowhere to be found.” She concludes, “As G8 budgets decline, the meeting is a unique opportunity to discuss cooperation on global health with the G8+5 leaders from emerging economies” (3/21).
