Continued U.S. Leadership In Global Health Can Help ‘Make America Great Again’

Huffington Post: How Can President Elect Donald Trump ‘Make America Great Again?’
Steve Davis, president and CEO of PATH

“…By fostering healthier, more prosperous communities, [programs like the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)] create a safer and more secure world. This is fundamental to American global leadership and key to our national interest. … If anything, we should consider doing more, not less. … Even in this period of uncertainty and polarization, I believe we all still share a few basic beliefs. One is that healthier societies are more stable, more productive, and more secure. Another is that a primary role of government is to do all that it can to ensure that every child is born with a reasonable chance to live a healthy and productive life. Continued American leadership in global health and development is a powerful way to realize both of these beliefs — here and abroad. I can’t imagine a more effective way to put America first than this” (1/20).
