The U.S. Government Engagement in Global Health: A Primer

The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, January 2017

44 pp. 1.1 MB

The U.S. government is the largest funder and implementer of global health programs worldwide, although U.S. funding for global health has plateaued in recent years in the wake of the financial crisis and continuing fiscal constraint. This primer provides basic information about global health and U.S. government’s response thus far. Although this document focuses primarily on the U.S. government, it is important to acknowledge the role played by other countries, multilateral organizations, and private sector actors such as non-governmental organizations (NGOs), foundations, corporations, and others, in the global health response.
