The United Nations established October 12, 1999 as the day world population will top 6 billion people. In honor of this historic landmark, the Population Fellows Program and Population Studies Center invited a distinguished panel of experts to discuss what this means for global welfare.

Dean of Columbia University's School of Public Health Allan Rosenfield, who discussed the implications of 6 billion people for the world's health; and
