"Task Force Identifies Ways U.S. HealthCare Systems Can Learn From The World"
Millions of Americans have the same life expectancy as the American national average in the 1970s, according to a new task force report from the Arnhold Institute for Global Health, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. But surprisingly, there are lessons to be learned by the United States in improving community health from low- and middle-income countries such as Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Brazil that have seen dramatic gains in life expectancy, according to The Task Force on Global Advantage findings. "The findings hold great potential to improve the health of struggling communities in America. As global experience shows us, struggling communities can achieve breakthroughs if they are included in the design of their care. To equitably improve health outcomes in the United States, we have to find the world's best solutions and then make them our own," said Prabhjot Singh, MD, PhD, director of the Arnhold Institute for Global Health and chair of the department of health system design and global health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and chair of the Task Force. "The Arnhold Institute is committed to advancing the important findings of the Task Force."
