From the Paper:

"The U.S. Global Health Initiative is extremely important to nurses. There are three areas in which nurses can gain recognition and employ their healthcare knowledge for the better good. One area is the ability to gather outcome information from treatments given for specific disease populations which will help the GHI appropriate funds where they are needed. Another area is to help decide how a "women and girls centered approach [can] best be implemented" (Kates, 2010, p. 12). Finally, a third area that nurses can focus on is to help define and measure health system strengthening. These three areas are extremely relevant to nurses because their involvement will be of utmost importance to the government in implementing programs that will help reach the goals of the U.S. Global Health Initiative.
"One core principle of the GHI is "to improve metrics and enhance monitoring and evaluation of global health interventions, to move from process to outcomes, and be 'results-oriented rather than expenditure- or input-based'" (Kates, 2010, p. 7). Results and outcomes can be gathered by nurses. This puts nurses at the head of helping to decide where money should be appropriated based on the results that are gathered. Because nurses provide patient care, they see the outcome of the care given. By having nurses gather the outcome information, it will be easier to "capture the benefits gained in one area due to a health intervention in another" (Kates, 2010, p. 7)."
