GEG’s Carolyn Deere Birkbeck has been appointed to the Lancet – University of Oslo Panel on Global Governance for Health. The Panel, which will focus this year on the intersection of international trade and public health, is a follow up to the Commission on Global Governance for Health.

The mandate of the Panel is to provide evidence, based on high-quality, independent research and analysis on global social and political determinants of health, which can be used to inform and impact on political processes that influence global health. The Panel will focus in its first year on trade and investment, and will publish its findings annually in The Lancet.

The Panel will comprise six independent experts, including Sakiko Fukuda Parr (for many years in charge of the Human Development Report, now at the New School in New York) and Anand Grover (recently the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health).
