This show was the last in a four-part series of two-hour special programs on the international conference "Global Health — A Bridge to the Future" that was held at Boston University last month.

The 4-day conference, presented by The Global Health Initiative and the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer Range Future at Boston University, approached the issue of global health from four thematic areas: creativity, identity, urbanization, and institutions.

This show featured excerpts from the session on "institutions" that was intended to explore the role and function of supranational institutions and their ability, or inability, to effectively address the broad range of health issues in the face of the challenges imposed by the Millennium Development Goals.

This program aired on December 11, 2005.
