USAID's Global Health Strategic Framework

USAID's Global Health Strategic Framework sets the direction of the global health sector for fiscal years 2012–2016. The Strategic Framework incorporates the principles of the Global Health Initiative, which form the foundation of our work, is set within the U.S. Agency for International Development's (USAID's) core development mission and priorities, and promotes an inclusive and integrated approach to global health across the U.S. Government.

USAID supports partner countries in preventing and managing major health challenges of poor, underserved, and vulnerable people, leading to improved health outcomes by:

  • Providing technical leadership in responding to new global health challenges
  • Partnering strategically with a wide range of actors
  • Accelerating the development of innovation, science, and technology
  • Scaling up evidence-based, equitable, inclusive, and locally adapted health solutions
  • Strengthening local health system capacity to support partner countries' leadership of health policies, strategies, and actions
  • Promoting inclusion, gender equality, and female empowerment
  • Working efficiently and being effective stewards of public trust and resources
