Over the last decade, global health has risen dramatically in its significance to U.S. foreign policy. With that rise have come several contested and sensitive issues that are under-discussed and overshadowed by controversy. Unresolved disputes are obstacles to greater, faster, and more efficient progress in improving health conditions. Divergent views on money, strategy, and values offer to take global health policy in very different directions. The noted health expert and correspondent, Susan Dentzer, editor-in-chief of Health Affairs, has kindly agreed to moderate the series. Each debate will run 90 minutes, feature a lead presenter and 1-2 respondents, and allow time for substantial audience participation.
At a time of new global opportunities and challenges, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) provides strategic insights and policy solutions to decisionmakers in government, international institutions, the private sector, and civil society. A bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, DC, CSIS conducts research and analysis and develops policy initiatives that look into the future and anticipate change.
