USAID’s “IMPACTblog”: Resilient Health Systems Can Prevent and Contain Pandemics
Irene Koek, acting deputy assistant administrator for USAID’s Bureau for Global Health, discusses USAID’s investments in health system strengthening and the importance of resilience, writing, “As the world becomes increasingly connected, we must ensure that health professionals are able to address the complex, multi-sectoral disease detection, response, prevention, and control challenges in their countries and regions. In this context, resilience is about helping other countries be more well-rounded and prepared to create a safer, healthier world for all” (5/24).
