    schema:description "Whether it's AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, or SARS in China, the effects of epidemics are rarely limited to their countries of origin. In today's global village, no society or national economy is spared the devastation these epidemics wreak. For the most part, the management of global health crises has been left in the hands of elected officials and non-governmental organizations such as the United Nations. But, as Pfizer chairman Henry A. McKinnell clearly demonstrates in this learned and controversial book, a problem of such magnitude is simply beyond the scope of politicians and underfunded nonprofits. A Call to Action reframes the health care debate, arguing that the focus should be on the benefits of wellness to society; a more productive society leads to a more robust economy, increasing the quality of life for communities and the companies that serve them. The book also provides a sobering assessment of the threat of global disease epidemics and offers a prescription for what business leaders--who, the author believes, are best equipped to address the problem--can and must do to contain it."@en ;
