About the Project

The COVID-19 pandemic, geopolitical and ideological competition in international relations, the climate change crisis, and political and economic problems in the United States have transformed the context in which the United States engages with global health challenges. Since the end of the Cold War, the United States has been a leader in global health. However, the challenges now facing the United States require re-examining—and potentially re-inventing—why engagement with global health serves the national interest, what strategies best advance that interest, and how U.S. foreign policy can most effectively address global health challenges. The project will identify problems, explore new ideas, assess proposals, and recommend policies for strengthening U.S. engagement with global health.
