Dr. Miller Presents at “Global Health 2035”, Dec. 17 2014


On December 17, 2014, Professor Suellen Miller presented at “Global Health 2035”, the San Francisco launch of the Lancet publication. Prompted by the 20th anniversary of Investing in Health, the World Bank’s 1993 World Development Report (WDR 1993), an independent commission of 25 renowned economists and global health experts from around the world came together from December 2012 to July 2013 to revisit the case for health investment.


The commission was chaired by Lawrence Summers, the Chief Economist at the World Bank responsible for choosing global health as the focus of WDR 1993, and co-chaired by Dean Jamison, lead author of WDR 1993. The commissioners aimed to reconsider the recommendations of WDR 1993; examine how the context for health investment has changed in the past 20 years; and develop an ambitious, forward-looking health policy agenda targeting the world’s poor populations.
