Description

Description: Geneva Health Forum 2010: Thematic Overview
Globalization, Crisis, and Health Systems: Confronting Regional Perspectives
• Crises reveal existing weaknesses and disparities and offer opportunities for health systems to function on new grounds
• Crises can be local, but are increasingly global in their reach, and their impacts on health systems call for critical examination
• Globalization tends to open new health services markets (structure, systems, workforce, insurances, etc.) which can engender reorganization and redistribution of roles within national health systems
• Exploring concrete examples of local and regional responses to crises and impacts of globalization offers a rich source from which innovative local and global approaches can be formulated
• New forms of governance that include the numerous new local and global partners in health must be identified Information technologies facilitate the dissemination of information to increasingly diversified actors, local and global -- a phenomenon which poses new challenges and opportunities
