In this post on the State Department's DipNote blog, U.S. Ambassador to Haiti Kenneth Merten discusses the June 26th signing of the Partnership Framework to support Haiti's Health Strategy between the Government of Haiti (GOH) and the U.S. Government (USG). "The purpose of this Partnership Framework is to refocus the cooperation between the USG and GOH, and their respective partners, to support Haiti's efforts to improve its health system and to reach the Millennium Development Goals, including promoting maternal and child health, and reinforcing the fight against HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases," he states, noting that the "signing of this agreement illustrates that the USG has established a new way of working with the GOH on health issues, as the Haitian government begins to take greater ownership of its health program" (7/5).
