In this analysis of the global workforce, the Joint Learning Initiative, a consortium of more than 100 health leaders, proposes that mobilization and strengthening of human resources for health, neglected yet critical, is central to combating health crises in some of the world’s poorest countries and for building sustainable health systems everywhere. Ultimately, the crisis in human resources is a shared problem requiring shared responsibility for cooperative action.
New Patterns for Mexico/Nuevas Pautas para México: Observations on Remittances, Philanthropic Giving, and Equitable Development/Observaciones sobre Remesas, Donaciones Filantrópicas y Desarrollo Equitativo
This volume examines novel and emerging patterns of U.S. giving to Mexico and their impact on equitable development. In 2005, Mexican migrants living in the U.S. sent billions of dollars to relatives living in Mexico. This bilingual volume asks: What are these new patterns of diaspora giving, and how do they affect equitable development in Mexico?
Based on a nationwide survey of the giving habits of Pakistani-Americans, this study, the first of its kind, not only examines the history, demography, and institutional geography of Pakistani-Americans but also looks at how this immigrant community manages its multiple identities through charitable giving and volunteering.
Just as trade, finance, information, and technologies are moving rapidly across borders, so too are labor markets and transnational migrant communities, with migrants sending large quantities of money and knowledge back to their native countries as philanthropy, remittances, and commercial investments. Merz and colleagues examine the positive—and sometimes negative—impacts of this transactional engagement in studies of Africa, Asia, Central America, and the Caribbean.
The goals of health and human security are fundamentally valued in all societies, yet the breadth of their interconnections are not properly understood. This volume explores the evolving relationship between health and security in today’s interdependent world, and offers policy guidelines for global health action.
This book explores the complex challenges that globalization poses for human security, many of which are already high on the agenda of the international community. By adding a human security dimension to their analysis, the authors provide new insight into attempts to reduce our vulnerability to the new forces unleashed by global changes.
In an era of accelerated globalization, the relationship between diaspora philanthropy and economic and social development is increasingly relevant. This volume advances understanding of diaspora philanthropy in Chinese American and Indian American communities, especially the implications for development of the world’s two most populous countries.
