HHS links to global health

The Department of Health and Human Services last week announced the launch of a Web site that addresses the link between U.S. and international health issues.

The site (www.globalhealth.gov) offers information on HHS' work on global health problems. It also provides worldwide health statistics, reports and publications, and links to the department's global health partners.

The site was developed to be a portal of global health information for policymakers, researchers, doctors and the general public. HHS' Office of International and Refugee Health administers the site.

"The global health challenges for this new century are daunting," HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson said. "These problems require a solution that is driven by compassion and that includes the very best research, practice and service from HHS. Because our health, economies and humanitarian values have become truly global in nature, our responses must likewise be global in nature."
