The Eurozone Crisis and Global Health

Global Health Europe and the Global Health Working Group of the British International Studies Association organized a discussion meeting on “Beyond the Eurozone Crisis: Europe and the New Realities for Global Health”. The meeting, held on 27 September 2012, was hosted at the European Commission Representation (Europe House, London) and was co-sponsored by the UK’s Health Protection Agency and the Centre for Global Health Policy at Sussex University.

Two panel sessions, chaired and moderated by Andrew Jack, took the themes ‘what should Europe do for global health’ (panellists Nick Tomlinson, Head of International Affairs, Department of Health; Beatrice Nere, Programme Officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Chris Brookes, Director of Programmes and Partnership, Health Action Partnership International: HAPI) and ‘why is addressing global health important for Europe’ (panellists Richard Bergström, Director General, European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries & Associations; Anthony Kessel, Director of Public Health Strategy, Health Protection Agency; Sir Tom Hughes-Hallett, Executive Chair, Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London).
