This White House and the World Brief presents the key facts and recommendations drawn from Chapter One of The White House and the World: A Global Development Agenda for the Next U.S. President.
Faced with many urgent challenges, the next U.S. president may be tempted to let global health issues bubble along on the back burner and simply allow reasonably well-funded programs that garner bipartisan support to continue unchanged. This would be a mistake. Instead, the president should set an ambitious course to improve global health by leveraging the full range of U.S. assets to create a more just and safe world. CGD vice president Ruth Levine shows the way.
