With the release of our Global Health Policy in the Second Obama Term iTunes University course, we’ve received a few questions about how the course works. This is a quick 101 on the course’s basics.
The new volume, Global Health Policy in the Second Obama Term, analyzes seven important dimensions of a complex, widening U.S. global health agenda. Watch the authors discuss their individual topics.
This new volume from the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, Global Health Policy in the Second Obama Term, analyzes seven important dimensions of a complex, widening U.S. global health agenda: HIV/AIDS; malaria; polio eradication; women’s health; health security; health diplomacy; and multilateral partners.
Botswana has made tremendous strides in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the last decade, supported by the early and important U.S. partnership created through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). In the next five years, however, that partnership will be tested as the United States and Botswana negotiate a complex, multiyear handoff of PEPFAR-supported HIV/AIDS activities and as U.S. financial assistance is reduced. U.S. funding through PEPFAR is anticipated to decrease from $75 million to a plateau of $35 million by 2016, with an annual reduction in funding of about $10 million per year.
The tragedy of maternal mortality deserves all the attention it currently gets – and much more. But it would be a mistake to think of women’s poor pregnancy outcomes as an isolated set of purely medical challenges that can be solved by a narrow focus on emergency care.
The process of rebuilding Liberia’s health system, shattered by 14 years of devastating conflict, is entering a crucial and potentially destabilizing phase. The Liberian government and local NGOs are assuming a larger responsibility, but Liberia’s health system is beset with serious problems. This report focuses on specific things the United States can do to sustain the momentum on public health in Liberia.
The new report entitled, 'Advancing Health in Ethiopia: With Fewer Resources, An Uncertain GHI Strategy, and Vulnerabilities On the Ground," is an effort to understand both the many remarkable health gains achieved in recent years through the close partnership between the United States and Ethiopia, and to reflect on the key considerations which should guide U.S. policy looking forward, taking into account shifts in available resources, the mixed record of the Global Health Initiative (GHI) and the broader governing environment in Ethiopia.

Palestinians, Israelis, Americans and others are engaged in high-stakes brinkmanship over recognition of a Palestinian state at the United Nations. For the Palestinian leadership, pursuing UN statehood and membership in UN bodies holds out the prospect of greater international recognition and rare diplomatic leverage over both the United States and Israel. Membership may bring a visible political victory at a time when Palestinian victories are scarce.
As 2011 wound to a close the drama around the Global Fund intensified, as did the angst and uncertainty of its future, and prospects for a durable recovery. I began at that time a series of conversations with my co-author and friend, Todd Summers, with whom I had written about the Global Fund at its creation a decade ago, and who has remained integrally involved in the Fund’s work. We agreed it would be valuable to compose a candid, fair-minded look back at the root causes of the Fund's travails, combined with a positive but realistic look forward, focused on the emerging, fragile path to the Fund’s restabilization.
The Global Health Policy Center recently published two reports centered on health in the Middle East: Egypt and U.S. Health Assistance, and Gaza's Health Sector under Hamas.
From July 22 to 27, 2012, Washington, DC will host the nineteenth international AIDS conference, known as AIDS 2012. The AIDS 2012 conference theme, “Turning the Tide Together,” reflects organizers’ recognition that in 2012 the global AIDS community finds itself at a unique juncture: research advances have made it possible to envision an end to the epidemic at the precise moment when funding challenges threaten to slow progress on scientific discovery and program implementation.
