I am deeply convinced that, to arrive at lasting positive outcomes in global health, you need to take the time to understand the often widely divergent views while exploring what unites us. It’s by finding the common ground, the win-win, that we will achieve positive change for this and future generations among those who far too often feel left behind and unheard.
