Improving Health Care for the World's Poor: Public Health Experts Suggest Future Steps at Wilson Center
Date:7/14/2008

WASHINGTON, July 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Poor people in many countries receive lower-quality health care and fewer health services than the rich. What can be done to change this pattern? Some strategies have shown positive results, such as setting specific goals for improving health coverage of the poor, or soliciting poor clients' opinions on the design and operation of health systems.

On July 15 at 12:00 noon at the Wilson Center, Cesar Victora, a visiting professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Lynn Freedman, a professor at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, will highlight some policies that have succeeded -- and others that have failed -- in delivering high-quality, affordable health services and products to all people. They will also recommend future steps, paying particular attention to maternal and child health.
