Looking back at global health in 2012

Published on December 21, 2012 at 11:07 AM · No Comments

In a joint post in the Center for Global Development's (CGD) "Global Health Policy" blog, Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and a senior fellow at the CGD; research assistant Denizhan Duran; and Kate McQueston, program coordinator to the global health policy team, recap major global health events in 2012, linking to previous coverage of highlighted issues. "The global health legacy of 2012 will be twofold, a year of both increased commitments to health and flat lining budgets," they write, adding, "While these are all great news, it is still uncertain as to who will pay for these ambitious goals: biggest donors are already scaling down their health aid budgets, and there remains a tremendous resource gap to reach the end of AIDS" (12/20).
