Disease without Borders: How Global Health Issues Impact Domestic Health Policy
NOTE: 6:00 p.m. Community Gathering, 7:00 p.m. Event

Health issues impact millions of people every year, both in the U.S. and abroad: nearly one million people die from malaria each year; HIV infects approximately 4 million new people; drug resistant TB is a growing scourge. The United States spends trillions of dollars on domestic health care, but what is our incentive to look beyond our own borders and put additional resources towards improving global health? At a time when our nation has a growing debt, why should the United States -- and specifically, the Department of Health and Human Services -- invest in issues affecting the health of people living outside our borders? How do health issues transcend national borders? And what lessons can we take from global health work and research abroad that can be used here in the U.S.?

The World Affairs Council presents Dr. Nils Daulaire, Director of the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Global Affairs, for a discussion on the new Global Health Strategy of the department, launched by Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in early 2012. He will address how global health priorities are set and the importance of U.S. Government investments in global health.
