Focus On Global Health, NTDs Could Improve U.S.-Cuba Diplomatic Relations

Baker Institute Blog: Student blog: The role of global health in U.S.-Cuba relations
Anjali Bhatla, an intern in the disease and poverty program at the Baker Institute, discusses the role of global health in improving U.S.-Cuba diplomatic relations, writing, “A focus on [neglected tropical diseases (NTDs)] will not only yield benefits for both countries, but also provide advancements of global importance in reducing the burden of NTDs. This is an opportune time for global health diplomacy between the U.S. and Cuba to improve security and help both countries project regional influence, thus supporting traditional foreign policy objectives through the pursuit of scientific collaboration” (1/20).
