CDDEP interviews Gavin Yamey

June 6, 2014

Washington D.C. - Six months ago, the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health released its report Global Health 2035: A world converging within a generation. The Commission makes the case for world leaders, governments, and donors to not only continue investing in health, but to increase investments and capitalize on the unique opportunity to achieve a “grand convergence” in health by 2035. Since its launch, Global Health 2035 has attracted the attention of governments and development organizations around the world, and commissioners have been invited to discuss the report’s findings at Davos, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

CDDEP spoke with Gavin Yamey, one of the report’s commissioners and an associate professor of Epidemiology & Biostatistics at the University of California-San Francisco School of Medicine, about the report’s reception among the global health community.
