Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannThis month I was one of 1,300 people who participated in the Third Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, a conference organized in Recife, Brazil under the patronage of the World Health Organization, the Government of Brazil and the Pan American Health Organization. My job was to speak on a panel preceding the conference, at the invitation of Johnson & Johnson, about the contribution that business schools can make to strengthen health systems in the developing world.

There is no doubt in my mind that business education can contribute enormously to improving health systems, and not only in the developing world. Recent research by a group of economists led by Nicholas Bloom of Stanford University’s Department of Economics shows that better management quality is associated with significantly lower mortality rates.
