Please join us for the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation’s launch of their 2013 Financing Global Health report, to be held on Tuesday April 8, 12:00-2:00 PM at CSIS (1616 Rhode Island Ave NW).
Dr. Christopher Murray, Director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), will discuss findings from a new paper on health financing in Health Affairs and IHME’s newest report, Financing Global Health 2013: Transition in an Age of Austerity. Dr. Murray will highlight how some donors have scaled back their funding while others have been increasingly generous. Using data from the latest Global Burden of Disease study, he will also compare current funding allocations to disease patterns around the world.
Dr. Murray will then join a roundtable discussion moderated by Dr. J. Stephen Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director of the Global Health Policy Center at CSIS, focused on the policy implications of IHME’s report.
Lunch will be served
