Guest Post On CFR Blog Discusses China’s Potential Role In Global Health, TB Control

Council on Foreign Relations: China’s Latent Opportunity for Global Health Engagement
Sean Joyce, former intern for the Global Health Program at the Council on Foreign Relations, discusses the WHO’s efforts to court China to continue increasing its role in global health, particularly in TB control. Joyce writes, “China’s health aid does have its shortcomings … Nevertheless, China does have certain critical pieces already in place to tackle global TB control. As [WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus] hopefully remarked, China’s Health Silk Road ‘has the potential to alter the course of development for 60 nations.’ Nowhere is this as true as in fighting TB” (9/26).
