1. Over the past two decades, global mental researchers have been working to develop a robust body of evidence to garner the political will and resources required to “scale up” mental health care for underserved populations around the world. We now have evidence of the relationship between mental health and the physical and economic health of nations. We have evidence of tremendous inequities in access to high-quality, affordable mental health care. And we have identified potentially cost-saving solutions to the so-called “treatment gap”. But where will we be two decades from now? In this talk, Grace will share perspectives of an early career researcher on next steps for global mental health.

  4. Dr. Benjamin Hawkins is Associate Professor in Global Health Policy at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Senior Research Fellow at the University of York. His current research focuses on the role of research evidence and corporate actors in health policy making, international trade agreements, multi-level governance and the judicialization of health policy at the supra-national level. Before entering academia, he worked in sales and marketing for a global alcohol producer.

    This lecture examines the role of Trans-National Corporations (TNCs) in the fields of tobacco and alcohol as political actors and the impact they have on global health policy. It will be argued that corporations are key actors in the policy process, who adopt specific political strategies to obtain their regulatory objectives. The lecture will highlight how these corporations operate as disease vectors, increasingly in LMIC markets, and examine contemporary policy approaches to address ‘industrial epidemics’. We will look at the different ways in which corporate actors influence governance and how their strategies have shifted over time. Finally, we will examine the similarities and differences between the tobacco and alcohol industries and question the rationale for the very different regulatory approaches taken towards them.

  5. Bacterial whole genome sequencing is transforming our understanding of the relative importance of other patients, the ward environment and the food chain as reservoirs of nosocomial pathogens. In this talk, Professor Sharon Peacock describes how sequencing is being used to redesign hospital infection prevention and control.
