VOA Health Chat: Long-Term Investments in the Workforce

Zack LangwayBlog, Featured, News

Earlier this week, Seed Global Health CEO Dr. Vanessa Kerry joined health reporter Linord Moudou on Voice of America’s “Health Chat.”

At Seed Global Health, we believe that investing in strong, locally-led health workforces is both an imperative and a long-term proposition. As Dr. Kerry noted in her interview, “to solve the really big problems… like a health care shortage — either on the sub-Saharan African continent, elsewhere in the world, or in your home in the U.S — it’s about looking long-term and making the right investments now that pay dividends in the future.”

Listen to the full interview above to hear Dr. Kerry’s insights into the need for investment, the challenges of the current U.S. global health funding landscape, and the opportunities to harness novel approaches and youth passion for a healthier tomorrow.
