Blog: Can Better Global Health Policies Have Worse Results?

August 21, 2009

"It's entirely possible that the Obama administration will institute better global health policies than its predecessor, and appear to get worse results," Ruth Levine, writes on the Center for Global Development's "Global Health Policy" blog. According to Levine, the Obama administration's "emphasis beyond HIV/AIDS and malaria, to maternal and child health and health systems" and "the language we're hearing of integration and country-ownership -- music to the ears of many of us -- are by no means synonyms for better health fast." The post explores some challenges associated with the Obama administration's new global health approach and makes recommendations for how to address them (8/18).
