U.S. Global Health Policy: In Focus: “The Global Fund and the U.S. in Their Next Phase”

During this webcast from Kaiser’s Washington, D.C., studio, Michel Kazatchkine, M.D., executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, discusses the next phase of the U.S. government’s role and involvement in the Global Fund. Dr. Kazatchkine speaks with Kaiser Family Foundation Vice President Jen Kates. The conversation covers questions such as: What is the role of the U.S. in funding the Global Fund?; How is that likely to change with the new U.S. Administration and Congress?; How is the U.S. role balanced with other donors?; What has the Fund accomplished?; What’s been disappointing?

This program is the first in a new webcast series from our studio entitled U.S. Global Health Policy: In Focus, devoted to discussing current and critical issues facing the U.S. Each session will feature experts in the field tackling tough global health problems who will speak about the U.S. government’s role and answer questions from webcast viewers.
