Warning that the US is falling short of its potential to improve global health security, Lauren Post and Amanda Glassman of the Center for Global Development call upon the nation’s next president to do better.
They offer 6 practical suggestions, building on CGD’s White House and the World briefing book.
- Appoint a global health senior director to the White House National Security Council, along with a global health directorate
- Replace ad hoc interagency task forces and emergency budget with a permanent global health emergency fund
- Facilitate a whole-of-economy independent evaluation of US global health investment, capturing missed opportunities
- Increase transparency of US government spending and its uses in global health
