The U.S. government has many agreements with the Chinese government for collaboration on global health. HHS operating divisions such as CDC, FDA, and NIH are also very active in fulfilling their missions through working with the Chinese in areas such as food safety and controlling diseases.
The benefits from HHS collaborations with India are visible today in many parts of the country, in the form of thousands of Indian scientists trained in the United States, dozens of collaborative programs, and numerous personal and institutional relationships.
Here are highlights of some global health work in countries in the Asia Pacific region.
