Thanks to a recent extraordinary rise in public and private giving, today more money is being directed toward the world's poor and sick than ever before. But unless these efforts start tackling public health in general instead of narrow, disease-specific problems--and unless the brain drain from the developing world can be stopped--poor countries could be pushed even further into trouble, in yet another tale of well-intended foreign meddling gone awry.
Since 1922, the Council has published Foreign Affairs, America's most influential publication on international affairs and foreign policy. It is more than a magazine — it is the international forum of choice for the most important new ideas, analysis, and debate on the most significant issues in the world. Inevitably, articles published in Foreign Affairs shape the political dialogue for months and years to come. With America more engaged in the world than ever, Foreign Affairs is performing an especially valuable service for its readers. Educators helping teach tomorrow's leaders and thinkers can also benefit from Foreign Affairs through its website, books and academic resources including our customized textbook program, Among Nations at www.AmongNations.com.
Founded in 1921, the Council on Foreign Relations is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries. The Council sponsors several hundred meetings each year, provides up-to-date information and analysis on its website (CFR.org), and publishes Foreign Affairs, the preeminent journal in the field, as well as dozens of other reports and books by noted experts.
