Next U.S. President Likely To Continue Support Of, Exhibit Leadership In Global Health Investments

Huffington Post: The Best of America, Part III: The 2016 Election and Bipartisan U.S. Leadership on Global Health
Deborah Derrick, former president of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

“…[T]he United States government has been a leader in [global health] investments and there is nothing about this election which points to a major pivot away from this. U.S. investments in global health and HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria have held steady in recent years, for example, despite overall discretionary funding cuts. These investments are undergirded by robust bipartisan and faith-based support. Simply put, investing in global health is the right and moral thing to do. … [P]rincipals in both parties have seen the phenomenal results of these U.S.-driven investments. … I fully expect that the future leader of the United States will choose to continue this proud legacy, regardless of his or her political leanings” (4/20).
