‘Science Speaks’ Examines Obama Administration’s Global Health Legacy

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: President Obama leaves a global health legacy marked by science, strategy, progress, challenge
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” discusses the Obama administration’s work in global health and progress toward achieving an AIDS-free generation. She writes, “The eight years that had followed President Obama’s oath of office marked a new path for global health responses, that while accomplishing more, also faced more challenges than ever. … If the Obama administration years have left a legacy of vision, strategy, success, and hope, they also have left a challenge to the administration, Congressional leaders, and implementers who follow, to apply the lessons of the last decades that infectious disease anywhere pose threats everywhere, and ensure that the access to health care and services that have been proven possible, become universal reality” (1/15).
