By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of TED, the renowned conference and resulting website that distribute “riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world.” For FSGers, an inherently curious bunch, it’s like intellectual candy – we’re even planning our own internal lunchtime TED talks series. And as a new member of FSG, I’ve found it to be an enormously useful tool for staying on-trend for our diverse issue areas. Over the past few months, I’ve been gaining expertise on global health: the players, the macro trends, the innovations and the challenges. I want to share with you five terrific TED talks on Global Health that I’ve come across.
