Courtney Carson, GHTC’s senior policy and advocacy associate, examines key provisions of the Global Health Innovation Act (H.R. 2241) and notes that the new legislation would direct “USAID to analyze how it is using innovation to address global health challenges and the ways in which the agency can further accelerate the development and use of health technologies. … Passing the Global Health Innovation Act will drive home the fact that health innovations are a critical piece of the global health agenda” (6/3).
