Report Examines HHS Global Health Strategy

The Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) has published a new report by Katherine Bliss, senior associate with CSIS Global Health Policy Center, titled “Global Health within a Domestic Agency: The Transformation of the Office of Global Affairs at HHS.” The summary states, “The HHS Global Health Strategy, with its emphasis on disease surveillance, food and drug safety, basic research, and health diplomacy, is noteworthy for its success in shining light on the important linkages between global and domestic health challenges. However, its development should be seen less as a stand-alone event and more as critical step within an ongoing process that has made global health a key element of the department’s work and made the department a critical player in the overall development and execution of U.S. global health policy and programs…” (1/6).

The KFF Daily Global Health Policy Report summarized news and information on global health policy from hundreds of sources, from May 2009 through December 2020. All summaries are archived and available via search.
