Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids

A Visions and Voices Event: Medical Humanitarianism: Possibilities & pitfalls

The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (2003) is the world’s first and, so far, only public health treaty in the WHO’s more than 60-year history. It is considered by the international community as a “best buy” in the struggle against the rapid rise of noncommunicable diseases in low- and middleincome countries, and is currently in force in almost all of them. The treaty is galvanizing governments and civil society organizations to face the disease and death driven by a powerful multinational industry.

Paul Farmer Dr. Paul Farmer will present two talks at USC’s University Park Campus and Health Sciences Campus. Dr. Farmer is a medical anthropologist, physician and founding director of Partners in Health, an international nonprofit organization that provides direct healthcare services and has undertaken research and advocacy activities on behalf of those who are sick and living in poverty. Dr. Farmer is the Presley Professor of Social Medicine and chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School; chief of the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital; and the United Nations Deputy Special Envoy for Haiti.

Empowering Women: A Fundamental Tool for Primary Health

In the developing world, women play a pivotal role in social and economic sectors, but this usually goes unnoticed. In rural Africa, women are instrumental in contributing to household incomes through basic profitable activities like subsistence farming. Minister Amelia Kyambadde is a warrior for women’s rights in Uganda. She will address issues around Uganda’s emerging social and economic climate, arguing that women’s empowerment must be established as the core of a healthy country for continued developmental growth. 12:00-1:00pm The Forum at Ronald Tutor Campus Center, USC University Park Campus Lecture co-hosted by: Center for International Studies

Diseases we can stop but don’t

Peter Hotez

Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Virology and Microbiology, Baylor College of Medicine Founding Dean, National School of Tropical Medicine

More than one billion people suffer from one or more of the neglected tropical diseases, almost exclusively in rural areas of poverty in the developing world. At least six of the seven neglected tropical diseases coexist in some fashion in over 75 percent of countries in Africa. “In terms of both health impact and cost-effectiveness, few other interventions can rival mass drug administration for NTDs...” – Peter Hotez 12:00-1:00pm Soto Building, Room 117, USC Health Sciences Campus Lecture co-hosted by: Keck School of Medicine

A Struggle for Relevance: The Future of WHO Kelley Lee Associate Dean of Research and Director of Global Health. London School of Tropical Medicine

Amid scholarly policy debates about the need to strengthen global health governance, the role of the World Health Organization (WHO) is invariably called into question. The UN specialized agency for health, WHO was created in 1948 to protect and promote health worldwide. The world, however, has changed immensely over the past six decades, shaped foremost by forces of globalization. Within the health field, the transnational nature of a growing range of health determinants, as well as their resultant health outcomes, presses the world to find new and effective means of collective action known as global health governance. This presentation will review how WHO fits within these efforts, which have resulted in a proliferation of global health institutions and initiatives, the key issues facing WHO’s struggle for continued relevance, and how the global health reform agenda might be taken forward. 12:00-1:00pm The Forum at Ronald Tutor Campus Center, USC University Park Campus Lecture co-hosted by: USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences; and the Institute for Prevention Research Events at USC University Park Campus: The Forum at Tutor Campus Center (TCC) 3607 Trousdale Parkway, Los Angeles CA 90089 Events at USC Health Science Campus: Soto Building (SSB) 2001 N.
