Administrator Samantha Power on CNN This Morning
Well, right now around the world, there are more than 500 journalists who are in detention of some kind. And just in the last year, 67 journalists have been killed while doing their work. This is a growing phenomenon, it’s a growing problem as countries become more repressive, as corrupt actors want to hide what they're doing, they lash out at journalists. And one of the things we realized is that lately, the tactic is to actually bankrupt journalists as well as to detain them. And so what we're launching today is called Reporters Shield, it's an insurance fund that will allow journalists who may not have the means to compete with a repressive government or an oligarch to actually have the insurance and the legal protection that they need in order to fight back and stay in business – stay in the business of holding accountable those actors who are trying to steal and repress their people.

Administrator Samantha Power “A Century of Global Health Progress Cannot End With Us”
In a major policy speech today at the Center for Global Development, USAID Administrator Samantha Power presented a strategic approach for reclaiming and accelerating public health progress around the world. Immediate global action is needed to reverse the staggering decline in global life expectancy and to support health systems weakened by COVID-19, the global food crisis, ongoing conflicts, and a changing climate. USAID’s global health approach will unite around three foundational efforts: 1) Turn COVID-19 into a manageable respiratory illness everywhere; 2) Build up our defenses against new outbreaks and future pandemic threats; 3) Investing in primary health care workers who will be the backbone of health system recovery.
