A new report (.pdf) by J. Stephen Morrison, a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) and director of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, "highlights achievements of U.S. global health programs over the past decade and the challenges that remain," according to the summary. Titled "U.S. Health Engagement In Africa: A Decade Of Remarkable Achievement: Now What?," the report summary says programs such as PEPFAR and the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI), "fulfill American humanitarian values by saving and enhancing lives; they strengthen health security against common and emerging threats; and they promote the stability and long-term development of vulnerable communities in low-income countries" (8/23).
