Where is the Health in Global Security? A conversation with Gayle Smith, CEO of ONE
International efforts are concentrated on securing funding to tackle one of the greatest challenges facing global security today – the fight against AIDS, TB and Malaria. Of course all eyes are turned towards Ukraine and mitigating the impact of Russia’s invasion, but COVID and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have transformed our understanding of global security, with health – particularly pandemic responses – now a central challenge the World faces. Gayle Smith, CEO of ONE, joins Ben to explore new definitions of global health security, the World Health Assembly in Geneva, advocacy to ensure the Global Fund is fully funded, and what its like to work with celebrities to build popular momentum for social movements.
