Global health is facing a time of political uncertainty and growing inequity, on the one hand, and great advances and innovations on the other, says David Mabey. It may come as a surprise, considering the dominant negative news narrative that grips us globally, but a survey put together by the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (RSTMH), an organisation of which I have just become president, has shown that those working in global health believe its future is bright.
