Health System Funding Can Address "Silent Killers"

November 16, 2009

"For too long, global health funding has gone to diseases like AIDS with the most vocal lobby groups and not to the diseases with the greatest need," Philip Stevens, a senior fellow at International Policy Network, writes in a Business Daily opinion piece. "Meanwhile, diseases that kill many more remain in relative obscurity," he writes. "Fortunately, things are beginning to change," he observes. "The U.N. has started pleading for funds to improve health systems, so that 'silent killers' such as pneumonia and diarrhoea can be better tackled." According to Stevens, "Better healthcare systems also make it easier to manage HIV patients, who tend to have other health problems" (11/16).
