#InequalityIs: Sue Desmond-Hellmann on inequality and health


Inequality is when the best of science
technology pace enthusiasm isn’t available for every single human being
in the world. Inequality of access to a working
health system has repercussions that are desperately sad and difficult not only
for the countries involved but in fact have a big impact and implications for
the whole world. So we look at health as a driver towards
equality we think about when markets have neglected the poor when those
normal market forces or the new technology or the great innovations
don’t get to the poor so we started talking about precision
public health making all that great data information technology breakthroughs
available for populations no matter what their income. My vision is
that every young boy or young girl when they’re born has the opportunity to
dream of anything if you’re blessed with access to resources education health
anything seems possible. I want every child to believe that
anything is possible.
