Global Health Programs – How to Improve

James C. Johnston, MD, JD recently published a written statement for the High Level Political Forum of the 2016 United Nations ECOSOC meeting.   This statement raised concerns that many of the global health programs at United States academic medical centers have focused on brief, self-centered medical missions to resource limited areas, which may cause significant harm to host nations.  Recommendations for improvement were provided.  A summary of this statement is available at the UN Documents Center online, and at Researchgate.
