  2. 2. Introduction • For decades USAID has been a leader in supporting the health of millions around the world. • The Global Health Bureau under the USAID umbrella prioritizes: Preventing child and maternal deaths; controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic and combating infectious disease • One of the hallmarks of effective health care delivery is a systemic approach to identifying, assessing and addressing the needs of high-risk, vulnerable populations. • While Primary Prevention is the first line of defense, of course, around the world many are already dealing with the great challenges of disease, malnutrition, infant mortality and the healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy which can impact a family’s ability to address basic needs

How can we address these public health problems?
