Global Health Challenges (and Canada in the global health system)
Whiteside notes the world is in a better place in terms of health than it has ever been. That said, we still need to talk about global health, Canada’s role in international health and the impact of inequality around the world. The global community needs to work together to prevent epidemics from reversing the gains the world has made, as a resurgence of epidemics would result in costs that would grow beyond an affordable range.
Preventable Diseases and Proactive Approaches to Healthcare
Preventable diseases and illnesses strike us in all nations: Type 2 diabetes, measles, HIV/AIDS, malaria and more. Access to and information on preventative actions, immunization, desire to affluence, and more impact their growth. Whiteside looks at the changing face of preventable illness and what we can do from a public and personal health perspective to eradicate these challenges.
HIV and AIDS and where we are going
The HIV/AIDS epidemic is showing scant signs of slowing down; its political impact varies greatly and is difficult to map. In this presentation, Alan takes a look at the current strategies, policies and practices being used and what this means for future generations.
