Global Health for All – You CAN Make a Difference

rohde

Jon Rohde, M.D. '63

March 2, 2012

Life expectancy has advanced more in the past half century than in all of previous human history. This amazing revolution in health, largely unrecognized, has been achieved by attacking the most pressing problems of the largest numbers and using appropriate technologies, modern communications and social activation. Water, diet, and education enhanced by targeted interventions with vaccines, contraceptives and simple treatments have decreased deaths and extended average life expectancy by over 25 years. Living through this revolution and working for over 40 years in developing countries, Dr. Rohde will review some of these remarkable achievements and discuss the emerging careers that promise to carry these advances into the most remote corners of the earth.
