The impact of global crises on health

18 March 2009 – Events such as the financial crisis and climate change are markers of massive failure in the international systems that govern the way nations and their populations interact. The world desperately needs a corrective strategy. A world that is greatly out of balance in matters of health is neither stable nor secure, said WHO Director-General Dr Margaret Chan today.
