Secretary Of State Pompeo Remains ‘Blank Slate’ On U.S. Role In Global Health Efforts

IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: New Secretary of State a blank slate on global health
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” discusses U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s testimony before Congress during his confirmation hearing, writing, “Pompeo’s take on the role of global infectious disease responses led by his department in international development, stability, and security remains an open question. … [T]he soft power of U.S. global health leadership went largely unmentioned in subsequent questioning during the hearing … As a potential global health leader, … he remains a blank slate, with only the outcomes of U.S. global infectious disease efforts ahead, to provide answers” (4/27).
