CGD Expert Discusses Trump Administration’s Actions Suggesting ‘Erosion Of U.S. Health Security Preparedness’

Center for Global Development: Global Health Security in the Trump Era: Time to Worry?
Jeremy Konyndyk, senior policy fellow at CGD, discusses actions the Trump administration has taken “that point toward a serious erosion of U.S. health security preparedness.” He writes, “Taken together, these developments point toward an abandonment of U.S. global investments in health security preparedness; a reduction in resources available for future outbreak response; and a dissolution of the White House’s capabilities to effectively manage either of those things” (5/17).
