Columnist Warns Trump Administration’s Policies Pose Threat To Global Public Health

Foreign Policy in Focus: Bad Bugs: How the White House Is Stoking a World Public Health Crisis
Conn Hallinan, columnist for Foreign Policy In Focus, discusses how the Trump administration’s policies could threaten global public health, writing, “[T]he thing that should … keep people up at night is Washington’s approach to international health organizations and the president’s stubborn refusal to address climate change. Bad bugs are coming, and they are stronger and nastier than they have ever been. … Trump’s disdain for international agencies and treaties, plus cuts in public health programs, and a relaxation of regulations on the use of antibiotics in animal husbandry, could create a worldwide medical catastrophe.” This post also appears in International Policy Digest (7/12).
