Population Reference Bureau (PRB) Releases 2017 World Population Data Sheet

Global Health Council (GHC) member PRB has released the its 2017 World Population Data Sheet package at www.worldpopdata.org featuring key health and population indicators and population projections for the world, regions, and 200-plus countries. This year’s theme is the world’s youth population (ages 15-24) focusing on whether this generation has what it needs to develop into productive adults and build better lives for themselves, their families, and their societies. Several indicators and analytical graphics in the Data Sheet explore specific themes related to youth well-being.

The landing page on www.worldpopdata.org is an interactive feature with sections containing videos and graphics on topics such as the percentage of youth who are not engaged in education or employment, growing noncommunicable disease risk behaviors among youth, trends in modern contraception use among young married women, and HIV/AIDS rates among young people in sub-Saharan Africa.  Please help expand the reach of the Data Sheet! The hashtag is #worldpopdata. For more information or to order print poster copies, email datasheet@prb.org.

Global Health Council Commends the Confirmation of Ambassador Mark Green to Lead USAID

Washington, DC (August 4, 2017) – Global Health Council (GHC) welcomes the confirmation of Ambassador Mark Green to serve as the Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Yesterday, the Senate unanimously approved Ambassador Green’s nomination.

“Ambassador Green brings years of experience and a deep understanding of the critical role the United States has in development and humanitarian responses,” said Loyce Pace, GHC President and Executive Director. “His leadership is needed at an agency currently facing budget cuts and discussing how to maximize efficiencies and effectiveness across its programs.”

As USAID Administrator, Ambassador Green will be charged with overseeing legacy initiatives such as the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the President’s Malaria Initiative, and U.S. commitments to end preventable child and maternal deaths and achieving an AIDS-free generation.  In addition, USAID plays a critical role improving systems and societies worldwide that can withstand the threat and effects of emerging health priorities.

“GHC looks forward to working with Ambassador Green in targeting several milestones across development, particularly in the area of global health,” said Pace.
