We also know that we cannot achieve our global health goals alone. In our work, HHS partners with many other Departments, including the U.S. Departments of State, Defense, Agriculture, Homeland Security, and Commerce. HHS also collaborates closely with USAID and with EPA. HHS also enjoys excellent bilateral partnerships with other governments, as well as good working relationships with multilateral organizations, nongovernmental and faith-based organizations, and with the private sector.
HHS is also committed to working to achieve several of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) developed by the United Nations. Eight MDGs were developed in September 2000 at the United Nations Millennium Summit to help provide a framework for leaders to improve the health and well-being of men, women, and children around the world. The intent is to make significant improvement in these areas by 2015. Of the MDGs developed, HHS is particularly focused on MDG 4 (reduce child mortality), MDG 5 (improve maternal health), and MDG 6 (combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases).
Important as international health may be today, addressing its challenges will be crucial in the future. If the U.S. Government is to continue its leadership in global affairs, it must continue to foster these high-tech, public health instruments for engaging the world, both to mitigate global health risks and to strengthen U.S. public diplomacy abroad.
