In this 75-minute session, experts will share perspectives and help the audience explore key issues: shifting political ideologies and investment priorities among traditional donor countries; comparable trends in developing countries; the role of the private sector; the relationship between science/data/facts and how issues are reported; where global health sits in relation to other issues including climate; and what female leaders can and should bring to these issues.
