The U.S. Global Health Initiative: Key Issues
This policy brief analyzes several key issues and questions on the Obama administration’s new U.S. Global Health Initiative (GHI), a proposed six-year effort building on existing disease-specific initiatives to combat HIV, tuberculosis and malaria, while increasing attention to other areas, including maternal and child health, family planning and reproductive health, nutrition, neglected tropical diseases, and the strengthening of underlying health systems.
The brief was released at an April 14, 2010 Kaiser forum on issues surrounding the GHI.
