In part 1 of the Global Health Matters podcast episode on the Geopolitics of Global Health, host Garry Aslanyan speaks with Ricardo Baptista Leite, who maps his career journey from treating patients with HIV and tropical diseases to serving four terms as a Member of Parliament in Portugal. He is also the founder and president of the UNITE Parliamentarians Network for Global Health, which brings together current and former political leaders in more than 100 countries pushing for science-based health policies. Together, Garry and Ricardo reflect on the global forces and factors that shape the economic, social, and political landscape affecting health for all.
