2018 Annual AAAS-Hitachi Lecture on Science and Society - New Paradigms for Global Health: Building Capacity through Science and Technology Partnerships

Why are science and technology partnerships—and science diplomacy—more critical to global health than ever before? Jimmy Kolker, former U.S. ambassador to Uganda and to Burkina Faso and the Obama administration’s chief HHS health diplomat, offers a practitioner’s perspective on new ways of integrating and advancing global health science, security, and assistance. Public-private and technical partnerships can enable the best experts to build sustainable capacity in low- and middle-income countries, strengthening global health science, policy, systems, and delivery.
