Global health: Progress and Challenges

Dr. Mehdi Noorbaksh is vice president of the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg and an internationally acknowledged expert on global health issues. He is International Affairs and Business professor at Harrisburg University and lectures around the world on global issues.

The collective action of countries, communities and organizations over the last 30 years has literally saved millions of lives around the world. Yet terrible inequalities in health and well-being persist. The world now faces a mix of old and new health challenges, including the preventable deaths of mothers and children, continuing epidemics of infectious diseases, and rising rates of chronic disease. We also remain vulnerable to the emergence of new and deadly pandemics. For these reasons, the next several decades will be just as important—if not more so—than the last in determining well-being across nations.
