Foreign Policy Editorial Examines Obama's Global "Health-Care Philosophy"

January 28, 2010

In a Foreign Policy opinion piece, Eduardo Gomez, assistant professor of public policy at Rutgers University at Camden, examines the Obama administration's approach to tackling global health issues. "Previously, Washington focused its funding on individual diseases, such as AIDS," Gomez writes. "The Obama administration, in contrast, seeks to tackle broad-category initiatives, most importantly, child and maternal health, family planning, and often-neglected tropical diseases. He also seeks to help other countries strengthen their health-care systems and infrastructure." Gomez outlines several factors contributing to the adminstration's global health strategy before writing, "While Obama certainly faces challenges in implementing his new global health vision, such as the economy and a fragmented bureaucracy, the administration has introduced initiatives that are much needed and long overdue. The next -- and hardest -- step is putting them into action" (1/27).
