Enhanced U.S. Efforts to Fight Tropical Disease Offer Hope to Millions of Patients
Date:2/22/2008

Pharmaceutical Companies' Donations of Medicines Remain Key Component

WASHINGTON, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) President and CEO Billy Tauzin today released the following statement on President Bush's proposal to increase the United States' efforts to battle neglected tropical diseases in the developing world:

"America's pharmaceutical research companies applaud President Bush's proposal to increase the United States' commitment to fight neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) such as trachoma, schistosomiasis, and river blindness. Many of these diseases are preventable and treatable, and this tremendous support -- coupled with the ongoing efforts by pharmaceutical companies -- offers great hope that we can bring an end to the devastation they cause.

"Today, most drugs to treat these diseases are donated by pharmaceutical companies -- at an estimated value in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Beyond the direct therapeutic benefit for patients, the contributions of these drugs also have a meaningful economic impact on the battle against disease in the developing world. In Sub-Saharan Africa, these donations have helped to lower the estimated cost of an effective program to fight NTDs to less than 40 cents per person per year, according to the White House.

"Researchers and scientists from America's pharmaceutical research companies are proud to have worked to develop effective treatments for a wide range of NTDs, and will be honored to accept President Bush's challenge to increase global action in this fight. Together, we can combat NTDs and significantly improve the lives of families and communities across Africa."
