Dr. Paulo Ivo Garrido, MD, MPH
Former Minister of Health, Mozambique
Former President, World Health Assembly
Dr. Garrido will share a sense of reality on the ground and give a unique perspective on Alma-Ata from the 1970s, when Mozambique and other countries were creating their own pathways to primary health care (PHC). As a physician and as former Minister of Health, Dr. Garrido offers a critical perspective on current approaches to global health by high-income countries, donor dependence and donor-funded vertical programs in low income countries.
