2010 Survey of Americans on the U.S. Role in Global Health

This survey is the third in a series by the Foundation that aims to illuminate the American public’s views and knowledge of U.S. efforts to improve health for people in developing countries.

The survey examines perceptions about foreign aid in general and assistance for health specifically, including the public’s priorities for international health assistance, perceptions of progress in improving health abroad, sources of news and information on global health issues, and the relationship between positive and negative news coverage and attitudes.

The survey was designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation. It was conducted August 3 through August 16 among a nationally representative random sample of 1,213 adults ages 18 and older. The margin of sampling for the overall survey is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
