J. Stephen Morrison, senior vice president and director of the Global Health Policy Center at CSIS, discusses the recent White House decision to dissolve the directorate for global health security and biothreats, writing, “[T]he Trump administration implicitly is signaling that it flatly rejects the notion that health security ranks as a true national security policy priority. … The price to U.S. national interests will be big, unless corrective action is taken soon” (6/28).
