This spring, after nearly a year of deliberation, a commission convened by the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) released a plan for US investment in global health. This month, PATH President and CEO and commission member Dr. Christopher J. Elias will join three of his commission colleagues to discuss the plan and solicit opinions for carrying it forward at a special session of the Global Health Council’s annual conference.
The International Conference for Global Health is the premier annual event in global health, drawing more than 2,500 health and development professionals from nearly 100 countries. This year’s conference, “Dateline 2010: Global Health Goals & Metrics,” will be held June 14 to June 18 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.
Dr. Elias joins moderator Dr. Jeffrey Sturchio, president and CEO of the Global Health Council, and CSIS commission members Dr. John Hamre, president and CEO of the Center for Strategic and International Studies; Dr. Peter Piot, director of the Institute for Global Health, Imperial College London; and Dr. Karen Remley, state health commissioner with the Virginia Department of Health to review the CSIS commission’s recommendations for US global health policy and discuss how to advance them.
