In 2009, President Obama created the Global Health Initiative (GHI) to strengthen the U.S. Government’s role in improving global health around the world. Through its seven core principles, GHI emphasizes the importance of evidence-based best practices to inform country-owned and sustainable outcomes.

In support of GHI, USAID has initiated a series of Evidence Summits, bringing together academics and development practitioners to review the evidence on some of the world’s most difficult development challenges. The ultimate aim of these summits is to improve health policies, programs and research in low- and middle-income countries.
