International Relations: Global Health Progress & Challenges

November 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Description: The collective action of countries, communities and organizations over the last 30 years has literally saved millions of lives around the world. Yet terrible inequalities in health and well being persist. The world now faces a mix of old and new health challenges, including the preventable deaths of mothers and children, continuing epidemics of infectious diseases, and rising rates of chronic disease. We also remain vulnerable to the emergence of new and deadly pandemics. For these reasons, the next several decades will be just as important—if not more so—than the last in determining well being across nations.

Discussion led by Vollie Riskin.

The International Relations Study group meets on the first Monday of the month at the Barbara S Ponce Public Library in Pinellas Park. The group is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area and the League of Women Voters of North Pinellas County.
