Podcasts, videos, and interactive web pieces have been an integral means for the CSIS Global Health Policy Center to share analysis and new content with a diverse, international audience.
The popular Take as Directed podcast features interviews with health, foreign policy, and security experts from around the world, covering a diverse range of global health issues. Take as Directed is available on our website, iTunes, and Spotify.
As the coronavirus or COVID-19 crisis unfolds, Take as Directed will be on a short hiatus as we bring you a new miniseries. As knowledge on COVID-19 evolves, Coronavirus Crisis Update will bring you the latest updates and analysis from CSIS experts and the leaders directing the global response. Coronavirus Crisis Update is co-hosted by J. Stephen Morrison, GHPC’s Director, and H. Andrew Schwartz, CSIS Chief Communications Officer.

Stephen Morrison, Director of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center and Katherine E. Bliss, Senior Fellow with the CSIS Global Health Policy Center. Our other highly successful podcast series, Coronavirus Crisis Update, will continue, with a focus on what is happening in America.
HIV/AIDS has reached an existential moment. As Covid-19 continues to pose geopolitical risks, there is a threat that the progress made over the past 40 years in the fight to end the AIDS pandemic will be undone. Covid-19 has exacerbated social and economic inequalities, placed further stress on weak health systems, and above all, highlighted the urgent need to strengthen global health security. In managing these dual pandemics, the global health community must adapt, protect, and integrate approaches in order to sustain momentum toward ending HIV/AIDS, while continuing to respond to Covid-19. AIDS’ Existential Moment will explore the progress needed toward reaching the new targets outlined in 2021 Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS; the current geopolitical climate; why it is still important to prioritize HIV/AIDS; and what can be done to bolster health security in low- and middle-income countries. Hosted by J. Stephen Morrison, Katherine Bliss, and Jeffrey Sturchio at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
