U.S. Will Strengthen Health Work In Haiti

In a post on the AIDS.gov blog, Ambassador Eric Goosby, U.S. global AIDS coordinator, writes about a recent visit to Haiti and gives an update on U.S. work with Haiti. “Going forward, America will continue to strengthen our partnership with Haiti on health. U.S. health activities in Haiti are an example of President Obama’s Global Health Initiative in action. PEPFAR’s HIV/AIDS investments provide a platform for U.S. health programs implemented by USAID and CDC and other agencies to support the Haitian government in enabling access to health care for its citizens. In this work, we are prioritizing health systems strengthening and infrastructure, seeking ultimately to move from providing health services directly to supporting the Haitian health system to meet the population’s needs,” Goosby writes (7/14).
