The United States plans to train 500,000 health workers in Latin America. As the White House announced today at the US Summit in Los Angeles, half a million employees, including those in the research and public administration areas, will be trained in five years.
The $ 100 million initiative will not be fully funded by the United States and will be funded by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). The decision was made against the backdrop of the epidemic experience: it revealed many weaknesses in the global health system and made clear how important strong health systems are to the entire population, the White House said.
The announcement comes shortly before US President Joe Biden’s summit was expected and comes a day after Vice President Kamala Harris announced a $ 1.9 billion investment package to create new jobs in Central America. The amount invested by private companies is, among other things, to encourage people to immigrate to the United States from their home countries.
