Global Health

Epidemics don't adhere to international borders. They don't
wave flags. They are invisible threats to our national security.
Without the unique skills of USAID and our partners, we will
not be able to counter and contain them.

Investments in global health protect Americans at home and abroad, save lives, strengthen fragile states, and promote social and economic progress.
