Devex interviews MSH President & CEO Dr. Jonathan D. Quick at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting.

"The last decade has been a stunning decade for global health. If you look at what's been achieved in AIDS, TB, malaria, --- less so in family planning, but still progress --- it's been an amazing decade," says MSH President & CEO Dr. Jonathan D. Quick in an interview with Devex.

"But, today, in low- and middle-income countries," Quick continues, "diseases --- heart diseases, lung diseases, diabetes, and other chronic diseases --- just among children, adolescents, and working-age adults --- are killing more people than AIDS, TB, and malaria combined. The epidemic is here."

"We are really excited about the movement toward universal health coverage."
