Leadership Map for the US

In an era of escalating health threats, a National Academies of Science report released yesterday urges the US to maintain a leadership role and invest in global health security.
The report defines 4 priority areas: global health security; HIV, TB, and malaria; women and children; and cardiovascular disease and cancer. It also advises that the US:

  • Catalyze innovation through the accelerated development of medical products and integrated digital health infrastructure
  • Employ more flexible financing mechanisms
  • Adhere to evidence-based science and economics, measurement, and accountability

The NAS has published 3 such reports, including a 2009 report guiding the Obama administration, the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy reported.

The Quote: "It's not just altruistic; it's strategically wise," said Michael Osterholm, CIDRAP's director.
