U.S. Policy Prohibiting Health Campaigns For Covert Operations ‘Is A Positive Move’

Center for Strategic & International Studies’ “Smart Global Health”: Fake CIA Vaccine Campaign: When the End Doesn’t Justify the Means
Todd Summers, senior adviser at the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, and J. Stephen Morrison, senior vice president and director of the center, write about a new White House policy recently made public stating the CIA will no longer use fake health campaigns for covert operations. “…The new administration policy is a positive move, restoring the bright line that must separate our covert and humanitarian activities. It will also help restore the integrity of U.S. leadership on global health, which like so much in the world, depends on faith and trust” (5/27).
