CPPH Guest Lecture - Global Health Diplomacy - dream and reality, Richard Alderslade

12:30pm to 2:15pm, D009, Ebsworth Building, Durham University, Queen's Campus, Stockton, Richard Alderslade


Health is improving globally, yet far from equally. The knowledge and technology exist to do better. Health diplomacy needs to raise its profile and capacity, and become more influential. That is the dream, yet what is the present reality? Can we be optimistic? The talk will explore these issues from the perspectives of both global health and global governance.
