Blog: GHI Proposal "Falls Short in Key Respects"

February 26, 2010

The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog outlines its concerns with the Obama administration's proposed Global Health Initiative (GHI). "In an official response submitted to the State Department today, the Global Center's two co-chairs write that the Consultation Document includes many significant and laudable goals. But they said the GHI blueprint falls short in key respects, from scaled-back targets for TB treatment to murky details about funding to inadequate plans for addressing the health care worker shortage. ... On HIV/AIDS, the Global Center notes that the Consultation Document is short on specifics explaining how the Administration would meet key treatment and prevention goals with the modest funding increases proposed." Text of the submission is available on the blog (Shesgreen, 2/22).
