Health Care in the Third World 40 years after the Declaration of Alma Ata - a View from the South

Ivo Garrido, MD, MPH, Former Minister of Health, Mozambique and Former President of the World Health Assembly

 

Date and Time: Thursday, November 8, 2018, 4 – 5:30 p.m.

Location: William H. Foege Building, Auditorium (Room S-060), University of Washington, Seattle

Dr. Ivo Garrido graduated from Unversidade Eduardo Mondlane with an MD degree in 1986. He was the President of the Association of Surgeons of East Africa in 1995 and Minister of Health of Mozambique from 2005-2010. Dr. Garrido was the President of the World Health Assembly in 2006. Dr. Garrido will share a sense of reality on the ground and give a unique perspective on Alma-Ata from the 1970s, when Mozambique and other countries were creating their own pathways to primary health care (PHC). As a physician and as former Minister of Health, Dr. Garrido offers a critical perspective on current approaches to global health by high-income countries, donor dependence and donor-funded vertical programs in low income countries.

 

About the Stephen Stewart Gloyd Endowed Lecture

The Gloyd Lecture was originally established in 1982 by Professor Lynn Staheli of Children’s Medical Center to honor his mentor, Dr. Park Gloyd.  In 2001, Park Gloyd endowed the lectureship as the Stephen Stewart Gloyd Endowed Lectureship to honor his son, Dr. Steve Gloyd, who was a pioneer in global health at the UW. Steve is Professor of Global Health and Health Services, and adjunct Professor in Epidemiology, Family Medicine, Industrial and Systems Engineering, and the Evans School of Public Affairs.  Steve created, in 1987, the International Health Program in the School of Public Health, and has been a longstanding global champion of social justice and equity. He has been the recipient of many awards, including the 38th UW Faculty Lecturer, the UW-wide Distinguished Teaching Award, and the 2010 Barsky Award for courageous and effective advocacy for human rights – selected by the American Public Health Association Physician’s Forum.
