Fatal Indifference: The G8, Africa, and Global Health

Fatal Indifference: The G8, Africa, and Global Health

Ratings: (0)|Views: 94|Likes:
The commitments of three recent G8 summits (1999–2001) are reviewed, analyzed, and critiqued in this report card on G8 actions. The most powerful political force behind multilateral institutions and contemporary globalization, the G8 group of industrialized countries sets policies based on a market-oriented development model in such areas as debt relief, foreign aid, trade, global health research, and investment that shape the development possibilities in poor countries but often do not serve their best interests, according to this analysis. Special attention is paid to the G8's treatment of Africa, a continent that has been exposed to market liberalization and structural adjustment policies that have not reaped benefits for African people.
