Monday, May 19th 2014: Through a partnership with the World Affairs Council of Atlanta, CARE USA, and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), this is the third consecutive year of the Atlanta Summit — keynoted by Senator Johnny Isakson and other prominent figures in government, business, and global health — to examine how to strengthen U.S. leadership in global health. This year's Atlanta Summit focuses on "Health in Africa -- The Unfinished Agenda." It is being organized to highlight the major progress achieved in the past decade, look at current and future challenges. No less important, the Summit is designed to stir an informed, provocative, candid debate over how the different key actors promoting health in Africa -- African governments, donor countries, NGOs, corporate entities -- are going to need to change their practices in the future, in order both to overcome the many enduring obstacles to success and make the partnerships in health perform at a much higher and more meaningful level.
