The panel was chaired by Youth Commission member Waruguru Wanjau and consisted of:

  • Professor Chantal Blouin, member of The Commission and researcher at the National Institute of Public Health, Quebec
  • Professor Ronald Labonté, Research Chair in Globalization & Health Equity, Institute of Population Health and professor at the University of Ottawa
  • Alexandre Lefebvre, member of the Youth Commission

The panel discussed health in the post MDG agenda through a global governance for Health lens. Blouin presented an overview of the Commission report which is to be published in The Lancet in the coming months. There was a lot of interest in the report and its proposals among the audience, representing mostly university academics from global health departments.

After the conference, Alexandre Lefebvre stated: “People are eager to read the report and push the discussion further, which is quite encouraging”.
