Washington, DC- The COVID-19 outbreak, one of many deadly disease outbreaks that have occurred and will occur again, clearly shows the importance of funding institutions like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, Health and Human Services, United States Agency for International Development, and the Environmental Protection Agency.These institutions are vital to protecting the health, security, and economic interests of all Americans. Cutting their funding as President Trump has proposed in his FY 2021 budget will weaken the nation’s ability respond to lethal outbreaks and is a clear and present danger to the security of all Americans.

This webinar brings together three leaders in this field who will share important insights into the power of this platform and what we can all do to impact the challenges affecting us and our natural world.
Each of the partnerships developed a Memorandum of Understanding to complete specific tasks or deliverables that advance global health practice. In December 2019, STAR completed the first of three Learning Exchanges with each of the partnerships to capture two baseline assessments: one on the actual partnership, completed collaboratively with the two partners; and the other on capacity building around knowledge management (KM), completed by each of the academic institutions individually.
