Blog: Obama's First Year on Foreign Aid Assistance Includes "Delays," "Handful of Promises"

January 29, 2010

The "U.N. Dispatch" blog examines how President Barack Obama handled U.S. foreign aid assistance his first year in office. "So far, we've seen a lot of delays and a handful of promises. They're good promises, but it's going to take at least another year before we see how well those promises are kept." The blog addresses how delays in filling key positions, like the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and USAID administrator, played out and points to several global health commitments made by the administration that have yet to come to fruition (Shaikh, 1/27).
