2023 Global Health Briefing Book

The U.S. has a long history of fighting diseases, developing effective programs, and building health systems throughout the world. This strong stewardship has helped spur incredible progress and innovation in global health.

But the work is far from over, particularly in a rapidly changing global health landscape. The list of threats to global health progress is daunting: mass migration, zoonotic spillover, natural disasters, changing disease patterns, and, of course, three years of a destabilizing global pandemic.

Building on the U.S. legacy of global health leadership is more important than ever.

Every two years, Global Health Council produces the Global Health Briefing Book to support Congress in its work of building a stronger, more holistic, and more equitable global health advocacy agenda. Each brief contained within the book provides a snapshot of the current state of a particular disease or issue area and offers recommendations for action.
