How do we best face the global health challenges of today and of the future? With an increasing world population, refugee numbers reaching record highs, and global warming causing new threats every day, will there ever be an easy answer?

He implemented projects supported by Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), the Gates Foundation, and the European Union. He was a co-founder of Médecins Sans Frontières Sweden and the CCM Task Force Operations Research Group. Dr. Peterson is a medical doctor with degrees in Medicine, Public Health and a PHD in International Pediatrics.
