GlobalPost Examines Global Health Initiative in Kenya

September 19, 2011

As part of its special report "Healing the World," GlobalPost examines how the Obama administration's Global Health Initiative (GHI) is affecting U.S. health-related work in Kenya.

Because "Kenya has employed GHI's more holistic strategy for global health since before it was codified into policy, observers believe Kenya can stand as a model for everything GHI intends to accomplish. It offers a glimpse into the future of the Obama administration's ambitious initiative. But lingering questions remain. Most pointedly, whether Kenya can find a way to build upon the solid base the country already has," GlobalPost writes, adding, "GHI fits well with the post-financial crisis era of austerity because it is about being more efficient; using what you have, cutting out waste and, eventually, getting out altogether" (McConnell, 9/16).
