Angie Drakulich, one of our BIO Official Bloggers, attended this morning Partnerships for Global Health Forum. This event, part of the 2011 BIO International Convention, is an annual event sponsored by BIO and BioVentures for Global Health.
In her blog Angie says:
What many Americans may not understand when they think of global health is how much it affects the country’s relationships and connectedness to other nations. One audience member suggested renaming the term “global health” something like “health security” or “sustainability” in an effort to gain more support for and acknowledgement of its value.
