Financial Times Examines How Trump Administration, Brexit Implementation Could Impact 6 Health Care Policy Areas

Financial Times: Health care: six policy areas Trump and Brexit wins will affect
“Health in 2017 will be significantly affected by two of last year’s most striking events: the U.K. referendum to leave the E.U. and the U.S. election of Donald Trump. Because of matters such as international aid payments and the global fight against diseases, the impacts of the changes these will bring will be felt far beyond these countries’ borders. Here are six areas vulnerable to buffeting by the changing political winds. 1. Health care coverage … 2. Development funding … 3. Migrants and health … 4. Global health leadership … 5. Health efficiency … 6. Spread of infectious diseases…” (Jack, 1/17).
