International health guru Hans Rosling is known worldwide for using animations of global trends to bring statistics to life as he lectures about past and contemporary economic, social and environmental changes in the world. A professor of International Health at Karolinska Institutet, the medical university in Stockholm, Sweden, he has served as adviser to WHO and UNICEF, co-founded M├ędecines sans Frontiers in Sweden and literally written the book on global health.

Rosling co-founded the Gapminder Foundation with his son and daughter-in-law in 2005. Gapminder promotes a fact-based world view by converting international statistics into moving, interactive, understandable and enjoyable graphics. Audiences around the world have been enthralled and educated by this world-class speaker, whose award-winning talks on global trends have been labeled “humorous, yet deadly serious.”
