U.S.-African Collaboration on Global Health

by on August 6, 2014

A new White House fact sheet discusses U.S.-African collaboration on global health. An excerpt from the fact sheet highlights gains:

The United States welcomes the incredible gains in health that Africa has achieved over the past 20 years:  HIV occurrence has been cut in half; tuberculosis (TB) and malaria deaths have been reduced by 40 percent and 30 percent, respectively; 50 percent fewer women die giving birth; and 50 million children’s lives have been saved due to better access to primary health care, better drug supply chains and access to skilled health care workers. In particular, we welcome the fact that African governments continue to increase their own domestic investments in public health, and to work with us and other partners to build the sustainable and effective public health systems that can serve the interests of their people and lay the foundation for strong and inclusive economic growth.

See the full fact sheet and explore MEASURE Evaluation’s web site to find resources related to many of the fact sheet topics.
