Rob Palkovitz, professor of human development and family studies, attended the Salzburg Global Seminar on “Making Health Care Better in Low and Middle Income Countries” in April.  He joined representatives from 33 countries to address the critical gap between knowledge of interventions that improve population health and the care actually provided to patients.  

“It was extremely encouraging to experience the cooperation across so many countries and contexts of health care provision.  We all had one goal in mind — to improve health care for every patient every time they require care,” said Palkovitz.

The collaborative efforts of participants resulted in the drafting of the Salzburg Statement on “How to Make Health Care Better in Low and Middle Income Countries: A Call to Action.” The statement will be presented at the World Health Assembly.
