ODI Director Examines Impacts Of Proposed U.S. Foreign Aid Cuts On Health Care In Developing Countries

Overseas Development Institute: Trump’s proposed aid cuts: the view from Uganda
Alex Thier, executive director of ODI, discusses how the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to U.S. foreign assistance could affect health care in developing countries and Uganda specifically, writing, ” [T]he U.S. can’t afford not to provide a basic minimum of live-saving aid abroad. People may say ‘let’s build bridges at home,’ but there is no argument that can seriously compete with the power of a few dollars that utterly transforms lives” (5/24).
