Global health in the 21st Century

Global health in the 21st CenturyCan societies strike a balance between combating the dangers of viral outbreaks and pandemics, while maintaining the hopes of eradicating established diseases, such as malaria, which claim millions of lives each year?
Average global life expectancy has increased from 48 years to 68 years since 1950 but many diseases continue to remain a challenge; and in the UK, one in three baby girls born in 2012 will live to be 100 years old. Despite these changes we have seen diseases such malaria, tuberculosis and HIV reach pandemic levels. This 21CC event asks what are the challenges facing global health?
