PSI CEO Discusses Global Health Aspects Of, Lessons From Trump Administration’s FY19 Budget Proposal

PSI’s “Impact”: What Trump’s ‘Groundhog Budget’ Reminds Us About Global Health Trends
Karl Hofmann, president and CEO of PSI, discusses the Trump administration’s FY19 budget proposal and compares it to the administration’s FY18 proposal. Hofmann writes, “Here are three Trump-era trends we shouldn’t ignore. 1. The global South will cover more of its health expenditures; the North and global institutions will cover less. … 2. We better listen to youth when thinking about their contraceptive needs. … 3. New technologies can effectively put more care and control directly in health consumers’ hands, even in the least developed parts of the world — but regulatory and funding hurdles need to be overcome…” (3/22).
