At the World Economic Forum in Davos, on January 24, 2014, Summers was joined by Bill Gates, Linah Mohohlo and Jim Yong Kim for an event to discuss a report by The Lancet Commission on Investing in Health, chaired by Summers. The report points to the possibility of achieving dramatic gains in global health by 2025 through a grand convergence around infectious, child, and maternal mortality; major reductions in the incidence and consequences of non-communicable disease and injuries; and the promise of universal health coverage. A brief video on convergence launched the event. Watch the video here.
