Changes in health 20 years out: where science meets policy

A lecture by Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Scientific Adviser, Department of Health

Venue: Divinity Centre, St John's College

There will be profound changes in health and disease over the next 20 years. The causes, demography and geography of ill health will shift significantly whilst the trend of demand for healthcare growing more rapidly than GNI is likely to continue. Science will help drive many of these changes; this lecture will discuss how it can predict, and help respond to, the policy challenges that will follow over the next 2 decades.
