White House aims to broaden approach to global health

Wall Street Journal, February 1, 2010

The Obama administration is expected to propose in its fiscal 2011 budget new funding to combat preventable and tropical diseases, malnutrition, and other conditions afflicting the world's poor, as part of a strategy to broaden its approach to global health. The new policy retains HIV/AIDS as the administration's top funding priority, but will devote new funding to reducing deaths from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth, poor nutrition, and common treatable illnesses, the Wall Street Journal reports.
