The US government has been engaged in global health activities for more than a century. Today, the US is the largest funder and implementer of global health programs worldwide with multi-pronged, multi-billion dollar investments that target a myriad of global health challenges, countries, and stakeholders. As global health and climate change priorities shift within the US government — from withdrawing from the landmark Paris Climate Agreement to severe decreases in global health funding — what is the impact on major public health threats like malaria? Join us for a discussion about the future of disease control and eradication in the context of political instability and climate change.

Hosted by Harvard's Defeating Malaria: From the Genes to the Globe Initiative.

Open to the Harvard community.
