Nuffield Council Symposium Report: ‘Global health: responsibility, ethics and policy’

A report of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics’ 20th anniversary symposium ‘Global health: responsibility, ethics and policy’ has been published.
At the symposium, which took place on 22 June 2011, speakers from around the globe discussed topics such as ethics and responsibility in global health, non-communicable diseases, the role of emerging biotechnologies in global health, and social determinants of health.
Over 150 people attended the meeting, including clinicians, government officials, and representatives of research funding bodies, charities and pharmaceutical companies, both from the UK and abroad.
Albert Weale, Chair of the Council, summed up the day by highlighting some major themes that had emerged, including medical training and migration, interdependence, responsibility, and ‘health for all’ policies. The symposium will inform the Council as it considers its future work in the field of global health.
