GlobalPost Examines GHI In Kenya

As part of its special report “Healing the World,” GlobalPost examines how the Obama administration’s Global Health Initiative (GHI) is affecting U.S. health-related work in Kenya.

Because “Kenya has employed GHI’s more holistic strategy for global health since before it was codified into policy, observers believe Kenya can stand as a model for everything GHI intends to accomplish. It offers a glimpse into the future of the Obama administration’s ambitious initiative. But lingering questions remain. Most pointedly, whether Kenya can find a way to build upon the solid base the country already has,” GlobalPost writes, adding, “GHI fits well with the post-financial crisis era of austerity because it is about being more efficient; using what you have, cutting out waste and, eventually, getting out altogether” (McConnell, 9/16).
