Trump Administration’s Proposed Budget Cuts Could Harm Global Health, Increase International Instability, Experts Say

Brookings Institution: How the Trump budget harms global health and weakens international stability
Jake Schneider, research assistant at the Brookings Institution, and Darrell West, director and vice president of governance studies and director of the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings, discuss the potential impacts of the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to foreign assistance for global health, writing, “[T]he Trump budget cuts are occurring amid dramatic slowdowns in public sector global health spending and limited private sector spending. That combination portends serious medical ramifications for the developing world and a possible increase in international instability. Both are problematic from the standpoint of American and world interests” (7/27).
