Accountability in Global Health: An Historical Perspective

Organizer: Human Rights Institute, University of Connecticut

 

Description: 

To whom are the designers and implementers of global health programs accountable? How have patterns of accountability changed over the course of the 20th and early 21st centuries? What kinds of mechanisms, metrics, and evidence have been used to account for, or demonstrate the results of, health interventions? What counts as success or failure? These are the questions to be examined in this talk, which will trace the history of accountability in global health over the past century.
