Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has published an issues brief on The Case for U.S. Investment in the Global Fund and Global Health.
As the title makes clear, this 8-page brief makes the case for the U.S. continuing to invest in global health generally, and in the Global Fund. “By challenging the status quo in how the world fights disease,” the brief says, “the Global Fund represents an efficient and innovative model of U.S. health leadership and diplomacy. U.S. investment in global health represents one of the few areas that have won consistent, bipartisan American support, or produced such concrete economic, security and humanitarian gains for the U.S. and the world.”
The brief will be welcomed by many people concerned about the impact that the change of administration in the U.S. might have on that country’s development aid.
