The Millennium Development Goals have garnered massive international support and mobilized new resources to improve conditions for the world's poorest. Much work remains to be done. We must redouble our efforts to ensure that we maintain progress while also laying the groundwork for addressing future global health challenges. And with the MDGs set to culminate in 2015, the global health community has its eye on the next wave of global health challenges, especially as the post-2015 debate moves to the country level. The 68th annual United Nations General Assembly provides a unique moment for the global health and diplomatic communities to help shape the next international development agenda.
The Catalysts for Global Health Conference is a gathering of high-level global health leaders and innovators that have been an integral part of the success of past global health efforts. As the community begins to think about global health post-2015, we need your expertise, guidance and leadership as we begin to promote the most practical and innovative solutions that save lives and improve the health of people all over the world.
We would be honored if you could attend this conference and lend your expertise to solving the next generation of global health solutions. The conference will provide an opportunity for global leaders to highlight successful programs, share ideas on overcoming funding and political barriers, and promote strategies to address emerging global health issues. The conference also provides a valuable platform for interacting, networking and collaborating with other global health leaders including Heads of State, Health Ministers, donor governments, international diplomats and the private sector.
