The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) submits this report pursuant to Section 7019(e) of Division G of Public Law 116-94 , the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2020, which incorporates by reference the requirements of House Report 116-94 :

The USAID Administrator is directed to report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 90 days after enactment of this Act, on the outcomes achieved over the last 12 months by U.S. global health programming including areas where results are being sustained by the transfer of responsibility to local health systems. The report should include best practices of global health integration as well as barriers to achieving greater integration including across funding streams and agencies.

USAID’s global health programs aim to prevent maternal and child deaths sustainably, control the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and combat infectious disease. Achieving t hese objectives requires strong public and private health institutions that can mitigate the deleterious health and economic effects of deadly outbreaks, such as Ebola or SARS-CoV-2.
