Blog: U.S. Policy Makers Should Look at Europe's Global Health Strategy

November 6, 2009

"While it can be difficult sometimes to see beyond 'the beltway,' perhaps the U.S. efforts at a 'global' strategy should take into consideration similar efforts from around the globe," according to the Center for Global Development's David Wendt on the "Global Health Policy" blog. Wendt notes current efforts by the EU to help determine their global health policy.

"In the U.S., international development programs are diffused across a number of agencies and there is no overarching strategy. When policy coherence happens across agencies, it is usually only around a single vertical program such as PEPFAR. ... I'd encourage U.S. policymakers working on the Global Health Initiative and stakeholders in developing countries to take a look at the [European Commission] issue paper on their role in global health ..." (11/2).
