Julian Le Grand, Richard Titmuss Professor of Social Policy London School of Economics, begins this conversation by exploring the financial and provisional aspects of global healthcare reform initiatives. In particular, he discusses the move towards the privatisation of healthcare in both developing and developed countries. The conversation then turns to the public health challenges faced by different communities and the rise of supposedly ‘developed world’ problems in the ‘developing world’. He also unpicks the merits of changing potentially damaging behavioural patterns through incentives, taxes and regulation. Professor Le Grand also gives his views on the role of multi-lateral international institutions and the state for regulating harmful activities.
