From the Executive Summary: "More than 600,000 of our fellow Americans, and nearly 4 million people globally, have died due to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. The devastating impact of the pandemic has been felt at home and abroad, triggering health and economic crises. Globally, we are witnessing the first wide scale increase in extreme poverty in more than twenty years, the loss of decades of development progress, increases in gender-based violence, rising food insecurity, and increased unemployment--particularly among young people and women. Even as we gain confidence in United States (U.S.) domestic COVID-19 vaccination coverage, none of us are safe until all of us are safe. The risk of emergent, dangerous variants where COVID-19 transmission remains high poses a risk to us all. This disease knows no borders. [...] On January 21, 2021, President Biden released the 'National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness,' [hyperlink] including Goal 7, which details the Biden-Harris Administration's comprehensive plan restore U.S. leadership globally and build better preparedness for future threats; re-engage with the World Health Organization (WHO) and seek to strengthen and reform it; urge the international COVID-19 public health and humanitarian response; restore U.S. leadership to the international COVID-19 response and advance global health security and diplomacy; and build better biopreparedness and expand resilience for biological threats. In support of that strategy, the 'U.S. COVID-19 Global Response and Recovery Framework' provides a focused set of objectives and lines of effort under which U.S. departments of agencies are executing a whole-of-government response."
