    pandemic preparedness abroad

    Does "abroad" here mean "outside of the U.S./the rest of the world"?

    ========================
    Proposals for new US-led initiatives for pandemic preparedness abroad do little to quell researchers' concerns. Some say these efforts might even add incoherence to the world's response to COVID-19, and global health more generally, if they're not connected to a fully-funded WHO. Its surreal to even be having this conversation, since its so hard to get ones head around the massive implications, says Rebecca Katz, director of the Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University in Washington DC.

    Re: pandemic preparedness abroad

    Yes. In this context abroad means "in countries other than the one I'm talking about".
