U.S. Commitment to Global Health
Institute of Medicine, March , 2008
“….The Institute of Medicine’s Board on Global Health is organizing a 14-month consensus study to examine and articulate the case for why multiple agencies from government and the private sector in the U.S. should make a deeper commitment to global health. This study aspires to be a broader and more complete exploration of the subject than the 1997 IOM report, America’s Vital Interest in Global Health.
