Reimagining global health : an introduction by Paul Farmer( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bringing together the experience, perspective and expertise of Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, and Arthur Kleinman, Reimagining Global Health provides an original, compelling introduction to the field of global health. Drawn from a Harvard course developed by their student Matthew Basilico, this work provides an accessible and engaging framework for the study of global health. Insisting on an approach that is historically deep and geographically broad, the authors underline the importance of a transdisciplinary approach, and offer a highly readable distillation of several historical and ethnographic perspectives of contemporary global health problems. The case studies presented throughout Reimagining Global Health bring together ethnographic, theoretical, and historical perspectives into a wholly new and exciting investigation of global health. The interdisciplinary approach outlined in this text should prove useful not only in schools of public health, nursing, and medicine, but also in undergraduate and graduate classes in anthropology, sociology, political economy, and history, among others"--Provided by publisher

Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank Group, shares the good news that the governors of the World Bank Group have set ambitious goals to end extreme poverty by 2030 and to boost shared prosperity for the bottom 40 percent of the population in developing countries.

We need to address our blind spots. We need to draw more attention to the major constraints for women and girls that are right in front of us. Discrimination and prejudice destroy economic opportunity. He reminds us that Malala Yousafzai started a social movement around education for girls first in Pakistan, and then around the world. If we can even begin to move together with that kind of resolve, the world will be more peaceful, more prosperous, more just and worthy of the mothers who gave birth to us
