Scott to Serve as Ranking Member of Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) has been named Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health, which critically oversees U.S. foreign aid, trade promotion, and counterterrorism efforts in the region, as well as international disease outbreak and response—to include our nation’s engagement with the World Health Organization (WHO).

“American leadership on the world stage is needed now more than ever,” said Senator Scott. “I am eager to work with my colleagues on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to promote America’s values and interests abroad, strengthen our cooperation with key partners and allies, curb the expanding influence of strategic competitors such as China and Russia—particularly in Africa—and hold the administration accountable.”  

The senator will also serve as a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Subcommittees on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues, and East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.
