MSNBC Examines New USAID Program To Promote Corporate Volunteerism
MSNBC.com examines a recently launched USAID program that is like a "mash-up of a corporate Peace Corps and 'The Apprentice.'" According to USAID, the new program will allow other businesses to leverage the expertise of IBM, which previously has run similar programs, and other corporations to create or expand international volunteer programs. "Volunteers will work on food security, sustainable economic growth, global climate adaptation, health, education, information technology and urban development, the agency said" (Gold, 6/2).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
