USAID Blog To Highlight Agency’s Work In Global Health

“During the month of May, USAID’s “IMPACTblog” “will be highlighting USAID’s work (.pdf) in Global Health,” the blog notes, adding, “From May 1-10, we will be featuring the role that science, technology and innovation plays in global health.” In the first post of the series, USAID Assistant Administrator for Global Health Ariel Pablos-Méndez writes, “Millions around the globe still do not have adequate access to reproductive, maternal and child health services.” He states, “USAID and the broader global health community invest in innovation, science and technology to find game-changing solutions,” highlighting the Grand Challenges for Development, the Development Innovation Ventures, the Higher Education Solutions Network, the Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact in Global Health, and Saving Lives at Birth. He concludes, “At USAID, we are committed to finding innovative solutions to global health problems and if the global health community can harness science, technology and innovation for the poorest communities in the world, we can leave an unparalleled legacy in global health in this next decade” (5/1).
