On April 15, 2016, the Alliance for Global Health and Competitiveness (AHC) hosted a forum at the World Bank, which coincided with the Bank’s Spring meetings.
Senior finance and economic policy officials from Turkey, Mexico, Costa Rica and Ireland participated in this forum. A group of AHC members, including major nonprofit organizations and global businesses, participated in this conversation.
The participants also highlighted the need for capacity building projects that will improve and create badly needed infrastructure prior to making these critical investments. Without capable delivery systems, the investments would not be fully utilized. Participants in this forum, including the government officials, agreed on the need to improve coordination between health and economic policy making because of the role of public health systems in driving economic development and job creation.
The Alliance for Global Health and Competitiveness, LLC is a multi-stakeholder initiative (MSI) of the Business Council for Global Development, LLC.
