HHS works to improve global health through direct assistance, technical and program support, training and capacity building, and through research.
Within HHS, CDC works to detect, verify, and quickly respond to outbreaks of infectious diseases around the globe and to control other health threats at their origin to prevent international spread. To maintain the safety of the American people, FDA regulates millions of products produced abroad. NIH addresses global health challenges through innovative, collaborative research and training programs, and through international partnerships. SAMHSA works with postconflict and postdisaster countries to enable stakeholders to work together to address the mental health needs of their peoples. It also helps to administer programs to train and support mental health professionals from developing nations. Building on its leadership of the domestic Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, HRSA provides training and quality improvement interventions in the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
HHS has a significant international presence. HHS staff—both civil servants and USPHS officers—serve around the globe. These dedicated professionals work to improve the health of the world—through their work on PEPFAR, the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), or through work to encourage innovative, cooperative biomedical research with researchers from other countries. HHS also regularly sends its staff to work as health attachés in U.S. Embassies and Missions abroad. These health attachés represent the U.S. Government to host-country ministries of health and to international organizations such as WHO.
