    The United States Presidential Global Health Initiative (GHI) outlined seven fundamental principles ito guide the U.S. Governments (USG) strategy, policy, and programs in current and future global health efforts. These principles normatively reflect how the USG works towards achieving global health priorities and health targets. The inclusion of the Promote Research and Innovation Principle underscores two critical shifts in global health thinking. First, evidence must guide and underpin policy, practice, and strategy decisions in global health. The global community expects accountability demonstrated by evidence that links investments to health outcomes with greater emphasis on efficiency and sustainability. Evidence to inform and drive effective, efficient, sustainable global health interventions, services, programs, and systems linking investments to outcomes is a core purpose of promoting research and innovation. Secondly, globalization combined with scientific advances has accelerated the rate of scientific exchange and multiplied the potential for global collaboration and local innovation while simultaneously bringing the challenges in resource scarce areas into greater focus. Over time the application of the Principle to Promote Research and Innovation, will improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability of global health services, interventions, and programs and lead to accelerated progress towards USG Global Health goals, including achieving an AIDS Free Generation by 2015, reaching the GHI Targets , and ending preventable child deaths as outlined in A Promise Renewedii. The application of this Principle will also facilitate the development of high impact research agendas and the translation of research results into global public health benefit. The purpose of this Principle paper is to share information, guidance, ideas, resources, challenges, and experiences with U.S. Government (USG) country teams on how to apply the Promotion of Research and Innovation (R&I) principle in their programs to accelerate progress towards the USG and partner country health goals. The paper includes information on how USG field teams can obtain technical support from the science and development agencies within the USG.
