2. On health systems strengthening, the Obama administration for seven years pursued a dual track approach. As you note, some aspects have been incorporated into specific disease programs such as malaria and tuberculosis. For example, the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), led by USAID and implemented together with CDC, is focused on further reducing malaria deaths and substantially decreasing malaria morbidity toward the long-term goal of elimination. In addition to scaling up lifesaving prevention and treatment, PMI has placed a great emphasis on support for strengthening key components of country health systems, including commodity supply chains, health information systems, and clinical and laboratory services. Many of the PMI-supported countries that have made the most progress in malaria control also have made the most progress in strengthening these key aspects of their health systems. At the same time, USAID works with priority countries to strengthen specific health functions in country-specific contexts — from bolstering governance structures, to helping countries collect, analyze, disseminate, and use timely and high quality health information. The dual track approach has similar objectives, but are not identical in all respects. (Full disclosure — I work for PMI at USAID).
Oh cry me a river…..she continues to publicly shame the father of her child and has the nerve to talk about the lack of justice for mothers…..men have been getting kicked over by the system forever and will continue to be treated as second class citizens. Thank you judge for recognizing that men play just as big of a role as a parent than the mother. The baby is obviously in the better household. You’re in debt, you’re ethics are questionable, you’ve proven not to be a fit parent with your first born and now you’re looking like an opportunist with this interview (who your daughter will one day get to read). Chris is married (better household stability), doesn’t have financial problems and has proven he’s capable of being a good parent evident from his first born. The only reason he even took you to court is because you didn’t accept his generous offer of child support and instead dragged him to court to request an unreasonable amount. Greed.
