The CSIS Bipartisan Alliance for Global Health Security
The CSIS Bipartisan Alliance for Global Health Security convenes an esteemed group of senior leaders and subject matter experts to advance a concrete, forward-leaning agenda for U.S. global health security strategy. It prioritizes coherent, sustained U.S. leadership, ensuring success in the major institutional reforms under way across the executive branch, integration of effort with strong accountability measures, enhanced global coordination, and building new partnerships and alliances that advance U.S. diplomacy. Equally critical is building the correct institutional arrangements, including adequate private sector incentives, to bring forward the next generation of technological innovation. The Alliance will identify options to strengthen core pandemic preparedness and response capabilities, while exploring the untapped opportunities to integrate capabilities across traditional infectious disease programming including on HIV/AIDS, routine immunization, and antimicrobial resistance, among other priorities. Building on the record of prior CSIS initiatives, the Alliance will deliver recommendations on global health security policy and programs to key decisionmakers in the U.S. Congress, the executive agencies, and non-governmental organizations. The two-year effort, running from spring 2023 through the end of 2024, is co-chaired by Senator Richard Burr, former Senator from North Carolina and immediate past Ranking Member on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, and Dr. Julie Gerberding, CEO of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health and former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Alliance is made possible by the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
