Global Infectious Disease and Canada's Role: What Can Be Done?
AbstractBeginning by establishing the scale of the global burden of infectious diseases, this paper examines why Canada should intervene in this issue, the main incentives being self-interest, health as a human right, economic investment and productivity requirements, and security implications. It then goes on to outline several ways forward for Canadian action such as: donor and government coordination, effective and efficient use of aid, involvement of the private sector, and use of non-aid instruments. It ends by advocating that Canada can do more than it presently does to combat this burden.
