About the session: The global Sustainable Development Goals require us to make sure “no one is left behind.” That means reaching the hardest to reach. We know how to deliver health to the so-called lowest hanging fruit, but what about the highest hanging fruit – the poorest of the poor, those who lack ID, the marginalized, the invisible? In this talk, Professor Wong will discuss the challenges of delivering health to the hard to reach, the innovations to reach, and the political and economic obstacles in our way.

About the Speaker: Professor Joseph Wong was appointed Associate Vice-President and Vice-Provost, International Student Experience on January 1, 2017. Professor Wong is currently the Ralph and Roz Halbert Professor of Innovation at the Munk School of Global Affairs, a Professor of Political Science in the Faculty of Arts and Science, and held the Canada Research Chair in Health, Democracy, and Development for two full terms, 2006 to 2016. He was the Director of the Asian Institute at the Munk School from 2005 to 2014.
