The professor, who was recognised in 1998 for his work in economics, and his analysis of famines, filled the 446-seater Shaw Theatre in central London for the lecture, which is awarded every three years by each successive RCGP president to a recipient who is not a GP.

Professor Sen was invited by Dr Iona Heath, who completed her term of office as RCGP president this month. In her introduction to the lecture, she describes Professor Sen as 'a living global treasure.'
