At 9:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday, May 25, the Kaiser Family Foundation will hold a briefing to explore the rollout of the U.S. government’s Global Health Initiative (GHI) on the ground, with a particular focus on the recently released GHI country-level strategies. The briefing will examine progress and challenges in translating the GHI in the field and next steps moving forward.
The briefing will include Lois Quam, Executive Director of the U.S. Global Health Initiative, as well as U.S. field representatives from several of the “GHI-plus” countries, selected to serve as learning laboratories for global health interventions and strategies that could be replicated elsewhere if successful. In addition, Mark Green, Senior Director at the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition and former Ambassador to Tanzania, and Karl Hofmann, President and CEO of PSI and former Ambassador to the Republic of Togo, will share their perspectives. Jen Kates, Vice President and Director, Global Health and HIV Policy, at the Kaiser Family Foundation will provide an overview and moderate the discussion.
