New health policy challenges extend beyond borders

More and more health policy challenges stretch across borders, and even powerful nations like the U.S. have found that they can no longer ensure the health of their citizens through national policies alone. Understanding and responding to this growing interdependence requires both health policy and foreign policy perspectives. To promote greater dialogue between the fields, AcademyHealth will launch its first Health in Foreign Policy Forum. The Forum will examine questions such as the following:
  • How do free trade agreements affect national health policies in both rich and poor countries?
  • What will happen if the health care providers resolve the growing nursing shortage in the US by recruiting from the world's poorest counties?
  • What world governance structures are needed to address the increased threat of bioterrorism and the natural spread of infectious disease?
  • Why is the AIDS pandemic in Africa a national security issue?
  • What new criteria is the Bush administration using to orient international aid in health?

Among the distinguished Forum speakers are:

  • Jack Croddy, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, Space, and Science,U.S. Department of State
  • Laurie Garrett, Council on Foreign Relations

Join health policy and foreign policy experts in a lively debate on these and other important issues.
