Date:10/4/2007

Eight Percent of U.S. Health Research Spending Goes to Global Health

ASPEN, Colo., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Public and private sources in the U.S. invested $9.3 billion last year in global health research, according to a new report by Research!America. That amount represents 8% of the $116 billion that Research!America estimates U.S. sources spent overall on health research in 2006.

"From Research!America polls, we know Americans think that investing in global health research is the smart thing to do for America and the right thing to do for the world," she said. "This report reinforces the direction Americans want, to place a higher priority on research to fight and prevent diseases that chiefly affect the world's poorest people."

-- National Institutes of Health -- nearly $5 billion

-- U.S. Agency for International Development -- $152 million

-- Department of Defense -- $64 million

-- Department of State -- $39 million

-- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention -- $32 million

-- Pharmaceutical and biotech companies -- nearly $3.5 billion for

-- Private foundations -- $592 million

"Only with strong, sustained investment in health and medical research can we address the humanitarian, economic and national security concerns within and beyond our borders," said The Honorable John Edward Porter, Research!America board chair and
