U.S.’s, Seattle-Based Global Health Organizations’ Relationship With China Important ‘To Unlock Solutions’ In Health, Development

Seattle Times: Our economy, and global health, depend on ties to China
Steve Davis, president and CEO of PATH, and Gary Locke, member of PATH’s board of directors

“Greater Seattle is one of the most internationally connected regions in the United States. More than 40 percent of the jobs in our region are tied to international trade and commerce. China, in particular, is an anchor relationship for our region. … The health of our region’s economy depends on [the U.S.’s relationship with China]. … The opportunity to dramatically improve health for the world’s most vulnerable people has never been better. And collaboration with China in this work has the potential to unlock solutions to some of the world’s most deadly diseases and persistent health problems. Together, we can uniquely harness innovation in a way that can benefit many more people. … This week, PATH is sending a group of partners, advocates, and staff to China to learn more about its growing role in global health and development. We are optimistic about the possibilities ahead, and the opportunities to fight disease and inequity…” (4/5).
