There is a long way before the whole world complies with the WHO guidelines for air quality, but the enormous burden of disease from outdoor air pollution forces us to increase action to come as far as possible. In continuation of this, we will discuss what we can do about air pollution at global, international, national, city and individual levels. Most of the actions to reduce air pollution also mitigates climate change and/or promote health in other ways – so there are many win-win and

Nordic Global Health Talks #5: Global Health Diplomacy: Why, Where and How

With the toll of the global COVID-19 pandemic approaching 3 million deaths in 192 countries and new and dangerous variants emerging constantly, the need for concerted global action has never been greater. This calls for not only a thoughtful public health approach but also diplomacy to bring coherence from the range of disparate and self-interested national responses. This is not the first time global health diplomacy has been called for: from the smallpox eradication program to Millennium Development Goals and more recently efforts to unify global health security, understanding and agreement between nations requires an appreciation for the political as well as the epidemiological aspects of response to these societal challenges. This talk will provide a brief history of global health diplomacy in the era of globalisation and discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by 21st century pandemics.

As the former US representative on the Executive Board of the World Health Organization and assistant secretary of health for global affairs during the Obama administration, Dr Nils Daulaire has practiced global health diplomacy at the highest levels. At present, Dr Daulaire is a Senior Visiting Scholar at the Arctic University of Norway/UiT and at the Harvard School of Public Health.
