This month's blog is dedicated to the recent trip the Global Health Policy Center (GLPC) took to South Africa. A delegation from GHPC traveled to South Africa in August, 2011 to look at the major efforts underway to renew the United States’ bilateral relationship with South Africa, with a particular focus on creating sustainable partnerships in health and other areas of U.S. foreign assistance. We ask members of our delegation this month to answer questions on their recent trip to South Africa and what their thoughts are on the future of US-South Africa relations.
In the past year, the events in Japan, Haiti, and elsewhere have put increased attention on emergency response. This month's blog is dedicated to responding to health needs during crisis situations: the necessary communications, the challenges that arise, and a host of other factors that go into this complex work.
With World Water Day on March 22nd, the theme of this month's blog is water. Themes to be discussed include urban water challenges; women and the water sector; water resources and climate change; and WASH sustainability.
With December 1st marking World AIDS Day and numerous breakthrough prevention studies announced this year, this month's blog will focus on HIV/AIDS.
