Briefing: 'New Report -- US Budget Cuts Jeopardize Recent Scientific Gains in Global Health'
Date:2/19/2013

A new report warns that potential cuts to US global health and research programs that battle diseases like AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria could threaten countless lives and put at risk the ripening fruits of past investments in innovations crucial to fighting these diseases. The report will be released at a Capitol Hill briefing on Tuesday.

US investments in global health research have helped deliver some of the greatest advances the field has ever seenincluding a vaccine for meningitis A, a rapid test for detecting tuberculosis, and the world's first malaria drug for children. These advances are already making a significant dent in the burden of disease around the world. Additional investments are nurturing research and development for new tools to fight HIV, maternal health complications, dengue fever, and African sleeping sickness, among others.

But the report, which is being released by a coalition of more than 25 leading global health, nonprofit organizations that work on vaccines, drugs and other tools and technologies, asserts that continued and consistent US investment in research and development will be needed to provide the momentum necessary to push these promising tools over the finish line.

During this Capitol Hill event, a high-level panel of experts will speak about the role of research, science, and the creation of new health products in meeting US global health and development objectives, as well as the key policy issues critical to maintaining recent scientific momentum to save lives around the world.
