October 22, 2014: The Nossal Institute for Global Health, University of Melbourne’s 10th Annual Global Health Forum is underway today. The theme of the forum is “Health security and economic growth in Asia-Pacific – challenges for Australian aid?” The forum is being held at an opportune time since the Australian aid agency, AusAID has recently integrated with Australia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The event featured a special video presentation by our President, Sania Nishtar, who spoke about four strategic areas that need consideration in discussions on foreign assistance in a context where priorities are likely to shift post-2015, when the MDGs come to term and a new era for development partnerships, dawns. The video presentation can be viewed here.
