    During the first Obama term, global health diplomacy took on elevated importance as a U.S. foreign policy objective.  Both the Department of State and the Department of Health and Human Services appear poised to continue to raise the diplomatic profile of global health during the second Obama term.  Over the next year, U.S. diplomats will be challenged to help ensure: smooth, sufficient replenishments of the GAVI Alliance, the World Bank International Development Association, and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; the articulation of a robust set of goals to advance the post-2015 Millennium Development agenda; and mutually beneficial relationships with emerging powers, many of which are active global health actors.

    This session will feature a lively discussion with high-level officials and experts from inside and outside the U.S. government. Speakers will include:

    Dr. Nils Daulaire
    Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs
    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

    Amb. Leslie Rowe
    Office of Global Health Diplomacy
    U.S. Department of State
