During its first term, the Obama administration developed new policies and initiatives on women's global health. The challenge in President Obama's second term will be to translate these commitments into concrete action.
At this session, expert panelists discussed the opportunities and challenges facing the second Obama administration in moving from policy to implementation on women’s global health issues.
The session featured three short videos made by CSIS that bring the voices of African women and African women leaders into the U.S. policy discussion. CSIS will also release a new paper, “U.S. Priorities for Women’s Global Health” from Global Health Policy in the Second Obama Term, which analyzes the policy developments under the first Obama term, the ongoing challenges, and policy recommendations moving forward.Speakers included:Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human ServicesChristy Turlington Burns, Founder, Every Mother CountsKristie Mikus, PEPFAR Country Coordinator, ZambiaKay Warren, Founder, HIV Initiative, Saddleback ChurchPhil Nieburg, Senior Associate, CSIS Global Health Policy CenterCarla Koppell, USAID Senior Coordinator for Gender Equality and Women's EmpowermentIntroductory remarks by J.
