Join us for a new quarterly series of moderated salon-style discussions featuring scientific experts from UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, UC Davis and Stanford. Each seminar will feature a different global health topic and be hosted by one of the four participating campuses.

By 2015, it is projected that we will be sharing the planet with 7.3 billion people. While the human population swells—especially in parts of the world where there is more poverty, disease, famine, and political instability—we must continue finding innovative ways to achieve global health goals. Population health coheres infectious disease, NCD's, and nutrition with behavioral economics, climate change, agriculture, resource scarcity, and the entire living ecosystem. To improve health, from rural villages to booming metropolises, there is a need for transdisciplinary and collaborative global health action. This panel convenes experts from around the Bay Area to explore cutting-edge research tackling complex global health challenges, and to debate the priorities for a growing, interconnected, and crowded Earth.

Although targets can help to focus global health efforts, they can also detract attention from deeper underlying challenges in global health. Recent pushes to achieve universal health coverage in low-income countries fail to account for the large share of services sought from private informal sector providers. More generally, they lack strategies for improving the (often very poor) quality of care to be “covered.” This panel will explore divergence between global health “targets” and on-the-ground realities that must be addressed by global health policy.

The first seminar will be hosted by UCSF and will focus on the current state of global HIV/AIDS. Panelists will discuss what progress has been made in fighting this global epidemic, how research findings are being translated into improved clinical outcomes, and how the Bay Area research community is working to address the questions that remain.
