Global Health Partners

DoD’s global health engagement activities are part of a whole-of-government approach to global health.  In addition to our international and NGO partners, we collaborate extensively with our U.S. Government partners. DoD participates in quarterly meetings with colleagues at the Department of State, Department of Health and Human Services, and the United States Agency for International Development, which helps synchronize our U.S. global health efforts. We generally take a supporting role to these other agencies, using our assets and particular strengths to amplify the reach and effectiveness of their actions, as well as sharing space in our research facilities abroad to ensure that expertise from across the entire spectrum of global health is engaged in the fight against threats to global health security.
