The Bureau is USAID’s center of excellence and focal point in providing worldwide leadership and technical expertise in the areas of child and maternal health and nutrition, HIV/AIDS, infectious disease, population, family planning and related reproductive health, and health systems. As such, the Bureau aligns resources with identified public health and development needs, and influences the global health priorities of the U.S. private sector, U.S.-based foundations, other donor organizations, host country governments, and host country civil society organizations. It also serves as the primary source of technical expertise and intellectual capital to the Agency and other U.S. foreign affairs agencies. The Bureau is the Agency repository for state-of-the-art thinking in biomedical, social science, and operations research and works to produce technical advances and innovations that can be disseminated and replicated at USAID Missions throughout the world.

The PDMS Office is GH’s hub for critical personnel and operations issues, including workforce planning; Foreign Service assignments, space planning, procurement/supply, records management, ethics matters and related training; information and physical security, and the recruitment, support, and development of GH personnel. The PDMS office interfaces with the Office of Security (SEC) for security clearances and badges; maintains vital records, emergency contact information, Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) and emergency procedures.
