From access to healthcare in France to global heath - a distinctive approach

September 22, 2016

Consulate General of France in New York

The dominance of English as the language of science and, increasingly, global health too often closes the door on the history and experiences of others. In France’s case, careful study of the nation’s struggle to achieve universal health coverage, together with its distinctive approach to global health, has much to offer those who seek to understand the diversity of paths to achieve better health at home and abroad. The two Lancet Series papers on France’s contribution to health, along with comments from French or Francophone leaders, aim to correct this imbalance.

Conferences 934 is a series of monthly conferences organized by the Consulate General of France that brings leading experts who share their analyses on international issues.
