Embedding Equity in Global Health Financing and Diplomacy

Posted on

On Oct. 12, IIGH brought together global health equity leaders from the U.S. government, the World Health Organization and Kenyan civil society to discuss and capitalize on the historic opportunity offered by the Biden-Harris administration to embed equity into U.S. global health investments and diplomacy. With equity at the top of the Biden-Harris administration’s policy agenda — and calls to “decolonize” global health growing in the U.S. and globally — the event, “Embedding Equity in U.S. Global Health Financing and Diplomacy,” asked what it means in practice to position health equity as a U.S. foreign policy priority. It provided a unique platform for experts from two branches of the U.S. government, the United Nations, and Kenyan civil society to grapple with and strategize on these issues together.
