Global Health Strategy of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services   [open pdf - 19MB]

"This HHS [Health and Human Services] Global Health Strategy articulates the strategies that will guide these global efforts to prevent disease, disability and death, promote health and well-being, advance knowledge and innovation, and strengthen partnerships and systems to improve responsiveness to myriad health challenges at home and abroad. The Global Health Strategy identifies three goals that contribute to achieving HHS's global health vision of a healthier, safer world: to protect and promote the health and well-being of Americans through global health action; to provide leadership and technical expertise in science, policy, programs, and practice to improve global health; and to work in concert with interagency partners to advance U.S. interests in international diplomacy, development, and security through global health action. […]The Global Health Strategy identifies key priorities under each objective, and links these efforts to the broader goals and objectives articulated in the HHS Strategic Plan FY 2010-2015. The Global Health Strategy also recognizes the key contributions of our partners within the U.S. Government as part of a whole of government approach, and cooperation with other national governments, multilateral organizations, and civil society and non-governmental groups."
