United States-Mexico Border Health Commission Border Health Improvement Initiative: The mission of the Office of Global Affairs (OGA) is to promote the health of the world's population by advancing the HHS Secretary and the Department global strategies and partnerships, thus also serving the health of the people of the United States. Within HHS, OGA coordinates international health and human services policy, research, and diplomacy. OGA represents HHS to other governments, other federal departments and agencies, international organizations, and the private sector on global issues. OGA Office of the Americas serves as the HHS focal point for governance and support of the United States-Mexico Border Health Commission (BHC, or the Commission), in coordination with the Office of International Relations of Mexico Secretariat of Health (SALUD). The HHS Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs serves as the HHS Secretary Delegate to the BHC, and the Office of the Americas Director serves as the Secretary Representative. The Office of the Americas also provides leadership and management for OGA cooperative agreements with the four U.S. Border states, which support activities and initiatives of the Commission. The Office of the Americas includes the BHC U.S. Section Executive Director and personnel of the BHC Office in El Paso, Texas, as well as staff based in Washington, D.C. The BHC U.S. Section Commission Members, who are nominated by their respective border state Governors and are appointed by the President, are also designated HHS Special Government Employees and are formally included as part of OGA Office of the Americas.

Additional Information on Eligibility
This is a single-eligibility cooperative agreement offered to the Arizona Department of Health Services/Office of Border Health; the California Department of Public Health/California Office of Binational Border Health; the New Mexico Department of Health/Office of Border Health; and the Texas Department of State Health Services/Office of Border Health. The BHC establishing legislation (22 U.S.C. 290n) calls for close coordination and integration with each of the four state offices of border health, and enabled the Commission to locate its border health operations within those existing state offices to avoid duplicative efforts. The four U.S. offices of border health have extensive experience supporting the BHC binational goals, objectives, and initiatives, and maintain important working relationships and shared ongoing initiatives with Mexico through the appropriate BHC outreach office(s) on the Mexican side of the border. Continuity and consistency in this binational effort in the border region is essential to the productivity and success of the BHC.
