Eight nations picked as health-aid labs

Wall Street Journal, June 18, 2010

The Obama administration has selected eight countries to serve as learning labs for a new global health strategy aimed in part at reducing maternal and child deaths and combatting preventable diseases. The move is among the first steps in the administration's overhaul of global health efforts, which calls for slowing increases in funding for HIV/AIDS programs. The new strategy would also devote more dollars and attention to attacking neglected tropical diseases and implementing other initiatives, the Wall Street Journal reports.
