Summary
"The most striking thing about health in the 21st Century is that the whole world is now so interconnected and so interdependent. This interdependence is changing the way we see health, creating a new global perspective and will affect the way we need to act. Turning the World Upside Down is a search to understand what is happening and what it means for us all. It is based on the authors journey from running the largest health system in the world to working in some of the poorest countries and draws on his experiences to explore new ideas and innovations from around the world. The book has three unique features: it describes what rich countries can learn from poorer ones, as well as the other way round; deals with health in rich and poor countries in the same way, not treating them as totally different things, and suggests that instead of talking about international development we should talk about co-development; and sets out a new vision for global health, based on our interdependence, our desire for independence and our rights and accountabilities as citizens of the world."--Publisher's description
