Forward Together : Approaching Global Inequities in Health
Technological gains across healthcare disciplines have led to astounding improvements in disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention. However there remain stark inequalities in the access to healthcare between different countries and communities: South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa for example, bear a disproportionate burden of global child mortality. Notably, although developing nations face unique obstacles to improving health access and delivery, the developed world is also not exempt from the burdens of health inequity.
In response to these disparities, this year’s Rhodes Healthcare Forum will bring together members of the healthcare community from a wide variety of backgrounds to discuss issues ranging from policy development, service delivery improvement and leadership in healthcare, to technological innovation and mental health. Throughout the conference, we will consider how the discussion can be related to challenges in underserved settings, so as to ensure that in moving forward to improve health, we move forward together.
