AmCham Healthcare Committee Meeting

AmCham believes that health is an important driver for wealth and economic growth, and AmCham’s Healthcare Committee seeks to contribute to legislative and policy discussions by providing Vietnamese policy makers, institutions and other relevant stakeholders with the perspective of US companies that operate or wish to operate here. We support a Vietnamese health agenda towards high-quality, non-discriminatory, sustainable and innovative health systems, and with those objectives, the Healthcare Committee will work issues related to pharmaceutical, medical devices, consumer and food products, insurance, biotech, and the financing, licensing and construction of healthcare facilities. AmCham’s Healthcare Committee aims to be a reliable partner to government institutions and to help ensure that healthcare-related legislation and policies add value to, and benefit, the entire healthcare ecosystem.

About the Special Guest:

Dr. Judy Monroe brings a unique perspective, expertise and experience to her position as CEO and President of the CDC Foundation. Over her career, Monroe’s professional focus has centered on the intersection of primary care and public health. Prior to joining the CDC Foundation, Monroe worked for six years with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), serving as director of the Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support (OSTLTS). In that role, Monroe oversaw key activities and technical assistance that support the nation’s health departments and the public health system. Before joining CDC, Monroe served as the state health commissioner for Indiana from 2005 to 2010. She was president of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) from 2008 to 2009. Monroe has served on many national advisory committees and boards, such as the CDC Surveillance Leadership Board, Global Health Leadership Council, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Public Health Leadership Forum, deBeaumont Foundation-sponsored National Advisory Committee for the Practical Playbook, Medicaid-Public Health Expert Committee, and the Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Population Health.

The CDC Foundation is a catalyst for unleashing the power of collaboration between CDC and philanthropies, private entities and individuals to protect the health, safety and security of America and the world. The government has unique capacities as well as limitations. The same is true for the private and philanthropic sectors. The CDC Foundation believes that people, groups and organizations have greater positive impact and can accomplish more collectively than individually. By aligning diverse interests and resources and leveraging all parties’ strengths, the CDC Foundation supports collaborations with private and philanthropic partners help create greater impact than any one entity can alone. Thanks to donors, the CDC Foundation has launched approximately 1,000 health protection programs and raised more than $740 million to support CDC’s work over the past two decades.
