CSIS Report Examines Global Health Policy In Second Obama Term

“I am pleased to share with you a new report [.pdf] and video series from the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, ‘Global Health Policy in the Second Obama Term,'” J. Stephen Morrison, senior vice president of the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) and director of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, writes in a letter posted on the center’s “Smart Global Health” blog. He continues, “This volume analyzes seven important dimensions of a complex, widening U.S. global health agenda: HIV/AIDS; malaria; polio eradication; women’s health; health security; health diplomacy; and multilateral partners.” Morrison notes, “As a whole, the volume brings to light three factors that have profoundly influenced the scope of U.S. global health engagement in recent years, and which must be at the forefront of the Obama administration’s and incoming Congress’ discussions of the future of U.S. global health policy: the remarkable bipartisan support for U.S. leadership on global health; the surprising conceptual and operational gains achieved even in the face of considerable austerity; and the essential ingredient to success: sustained, high-level U.S. leadership” (2/23).
