[Comment] Offline: Sweden seeks a renaissance in global health

We gather in the atrium of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, founded in 1739, surrounded by statues of Carl Linnaeus and portraits of the great (male) heroes of science (Newton, Galileo, Brahe). Reflecting on the pride and responsibility that Swedish scientists feel for their stewardship of the Nobels, some recalled with fond nostalgia the great lost years of Swedish influence in global health. The amplification of Sweden’s presence in health stemmed from the nation’s distinctive values, innovative research, policy translation, and strong activism.
