Views on the U.S. Role in Global Health Update: Summary

This is the summary of a survey that builds on the Foundation’s previous survey work in measuring Americans’ attitudes toward U.S. global health investments and priorities. The survey tracks some questions that were asked earlier in 2009, and delves into some new questions about specific areas of global health spending and how aid should be distributed. Following President Obama’s announcement of the Global Health Initiative, the survey also measures public perception of the current Administration and Congress with regards to global health efforts.

The survey was designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation. It was conducted October 21 through October 28 among a nationally representative random sample of 1,205 adults ages 18 and older. The margin of sampling error for the overall survey is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
