Health security is national security, and an infectious disease threat anywhere is a threat everywhere. U.S. leadership is critical to save lives domestically and globally by preventing, detecting, and responding to these health threats, in collaboration with international partners. The Department of State mobilizes political will and resources to help build capacity around the world to stop diseases from spreading and convenes global partners bilaterally, regionally, and multilaterally – to strengthen policies and frameworks for addressing global health challenges.

The Bureau of Global Health Security and Diplomacy provides a single voice of leadership on global health security and diplomacy and advances our longstanding focus on HIV/AIDS through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
