A range of bipartisan arguments have been developed that win support for global health from the left and the right of the political spectrum: international prestige, health security, health diplomacy, demonstrating health’s role in world stability, and designing cool, smart health programs, that everyone is into.
Drawing on recent history of what appeals to the right in global health — including health security, ideology, foreign policy, or as a counterpoise to military interventionism — Sebastian will use examples from around the world to examine how global health should now position itself to best achieve its mission.
Sebastian Kevany has conducted over 100 missions to Africa, the Middle East, and South-East Asia, with a particular focus on conflict and post-conflict settings, conducting program evaluation, diplomatic alignment, and other representative duties. Sebastian holds BA and MA degrees from Trinity College Dublin, an MPH degree from the University of Cape Town, and is an international policy specialist at the University of California, San Francisco.
