Improving health and reducing inequities worldwide


Bay Area Global Health Summit

In October 2010, the Global Health Group hosted a high-level global health summit for a broad audience at the new Mission Bay Campus of UCSF. The summit brought together health policy leaders from around the world to debate the opportunities and challenges created by scientific innovation, the global recession, and the new geopolitical realities, such as the rise of China as a major donor in Africa and elsewhere. The meeting set a new course for UCSF, and participants felt strongly that it brought a new and authoritative policy and geopolitical dimension to the scientific and technical contributions of the Bay Area to global health. The Global Health Group looks forward to seizing further opportunities to play this translational role in the future.
