Center for Global Development: Call a Spade a Spade: Venezuela is a Public Health Emergency
Roxanne Oroxom, policy analyst, and Amanda Glassman, chief operating officer, senior fellow, and board secretary, both at CGD, discuss Venezuela’s health and humanitarian situation and outline how the international community can respond. The authors write, “Accounts of persistent medicine stockouts, rampant disease spread, and rising mortality rates have poured out of Venezuela for years, and the situation has only deteriorated since then. It’s time to give Venezuela’s crisis its rightful designation: a public health emergency” (9/21).
