In February 2012, external evaluators EnCompass LLC released its final evaluation of the Ministerial Leadership Initiative for Global Health (MLI). This evaluation aimed to document and inform the development of the MLI approach and to assess the outcomes of that approach. The final report summarizes the evolution of MLI; explores the roles and efficacy of each enabling strategy; and summarizes the extensive findings of the project in each country and globally, as well as lessons and feedback from MLI participants. This is the executive summary; to request the full text, contact info.GHD@aspeninstitute.org.
Filling in the Gaps: Critical Linkages in Promoting Africa Food Security An Atlantic Basin Perspective
The challenge of global food security particularly in the Atlantic Basing will require critical linkages that are highlighted in this publication.
MLI organized the roundtable to share its lessons learned in working with health ministries and to give global health and development leaders a platform to address this issue. The discussion delved deeply into the structural and political challenges involved in trying to advance country ownership, as well as what it will take operationally to move beyond the rhetoric of country ownership to action.
The demographic dividend is a powerful opportunity that occurs during the demographic shift from a population with high mortality and fertility rates to longer life expectancies and smaller family sizes. It offers the potential to boost economic growth and poverty reduction—but only if government leaders implement sound policies.
Today, the world’s nations must provide for an ever-growing population against a backdrop of food and water shortages, depleted resources, and a changing climate. Slower population growth would make that challenge easier to meet. Moreover, the means to slow growth—including family planning and other reproductive health services—can promote development that meets human needs today—and tomorrow.
