World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim: “Ending Poverty: How Health and Innovation Can Lead the Way”

World Bank President Jim Yong Kim will argue when public and private actors invest in global health and human development, not only will individuals benefit, but all of society benefits as well. Dr. Kim is a physician and anthropologist, and has dedicated himself to international development, helping to improve the lives of under-served populations worldwide. In 1987, Kim co-founded Partners In Health, a nonprofit medical organization that now works on four continents to tackle drug-resistant tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS by integrating large-scale treatment programs into community-based primary care. Under Kim's leadership as the 12th president of the World Bank Group, the organization has established goals to end extreme poverty by 2030 and to boost shared prosperity for the bottom 40 percent of the population in developing countries.
