USAID Working To Improve Public Health In India

Writing in the White House Blog, Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, discusses a recent trip to India and how the USAID Health and Urban Poor (HUP) Program is working in settlements near the Taj Mahal to improve health infrastructure, connect residents with health services and track mothers and their children by name. “The partnership between USAID and the government of India to improve the lives of the residents of the settlement was impressive to witness,” she writes, adding, “After traveling to Africa, nutrition advancement has been an area of interest to me and I am proud that USAID has decided to partner with the Indian government to help end malnutrition.” The post includes a video discussing several of the programs (7/23).
