Prioritizing the Poor in Global Health

Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good has a great post up this week at their Common Good Forum on the need to prioritize the poor in public health issues, specifically focusing on the eradication of seven neglected tropical diseases. The article is Emily Conron's debut at CACG but her ability to bring together the moral vision of the Church articulated by Pope Francis with the practical means of ending the exclusion of millions of people who suffer from the diseases identifies Conron as a voice to keep an eye on.
