Strengthening Global Health Through U.S. Investments

Showing the Strengthening Global Health Through U.S. Investments Video

U.S. investments in global health have achieved profound success in the last decade. These investments have furthered efforts to fight infectious diseases like malaria and tuberculosis, combat HIV and AIDS, and support maternal and child health. In 2019, a critical new challenge for global health leaders will be responding to U.S. policies that curb funding for international health efforts. 

Loyce Pace, president and executive director of the Global Health Council, will discuss her experience as a leader in global health and share her thoughts on the unique challenges facing the field during this period of shifting political priorities. 


Loyce Pace, MPH, has worked on the ground in more than 10 countries delivering health programs and mobilizing advocates. She has held leadership positions at LIVESTRONG Foundation and the American Cancer Society. 

Maeve McKean is a lawyer who works at the intersections of global health and human rights. She is a graduate of Georgetown University, jointly earning a law degree from the Law Center and a master’s degree from the Walsh School of Foreign Service.

John Monahan is the senior advisor for global health to President John J. DeGioia; senior fellow, McCourt School of Public Policy; and senior scholar, O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.

This event is part of Georgetown’s Conversations in Global Health course, which brings leaders in global health to Georgetown to discuss their careers and work. These structured conversations, led by John Monahan and Maeve McKean, are open to all faculty, students, and staff.
