Global health symposium

An international line-up of speakers and 130 guests discussed current initiatives and future challenges in global health inequalities at the Council’s 20th anniversary symposium on Wednesday 22 June 2011 in London.
After exploring the ethical and moral arguments for improving health globally, three specific areas were explored: the social determinants of health; chronic and non-communicable disease; and the role of emerging biotechnologies. Participants agreed that disparities in health are real and ethically troubling, and that there is a complex set of responsibilities for tackling the problem.
