Devex interviews MSH President & CEO Dr. Jonathan D. Quick at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting.
“The last decade has been a stunning decade for global health. If you look at what’s been achieved in AIDS, TB, malaria, — less so in family planning, but still progress — it’s been an amazing decade,” says MSH President & CEO Dr. Jonathan D. Quick in an interview with Devex.
“But, today, in low- and middle-income countries,” Quick continues, “diseases — heart diseases, lung diseases, diabetes, and other chronic diseases — just among children, adolescents, and working-age adults — are killing more people than AIDS, TB, and malaria combined. The epidemic is here.”
“We are really excited about the movement toward universal health coverage.”
