Global History 

The Global Health Histories seminar series was established in late 2004. Its mission is based on the principle that understanding the history of health, especially during the last 60 years, helps the global public health community to respond to the challenges of today and help shape a healthier future for everyone, especially those most in need.

 

Seminars take place once a month, and bring together an external academic speaker and a WHO policy maker to debate pressing issues across the spectrum of global public health.

 

New topics in 2012

 

The first half of the 2012 seminar series will explore subjects such as the marketing of breast-milk substitutes, chlamydia, patient safety, public-private partnerships in health, financial incentives in health, and public health innovations.

The 2012 series is being supported by the University of York and the Wellcome Trust.
