“Shrinking aid dollars threaten the major advances made over the past decade in fighting disease and preventable deaths, a task that will grow even more difficult under new United Nations’ development goals, experts in global health said. … ‘Health is one piece of a much more crowded space that will compete for attention and finances, when we still haven’t finished the job,’ Jen Kates, Kaiser Family Foundation [vice president and] director of global health and HIV policy, said at a Center for Strategic and International Studies forum on Tuesday. … That means health dollars must be wisely spent where they have the greatest impact, or [global health] achievements to date could slide…” (Dawson, 6/24).
