Capitol Hill Briefing Highlights USAID’s Role In Global Health R&D

The Global Health Technologies Coalition’s (GHTC) “Breakthroughs” blog reports on a Capitol Hill briefing — which took place Tuesday and was sponsored by GHTC and PATH — “focused on the critical role USAID plays in supporting lifesaving global health research and development (R&D) for new health tools.” The blog adds, “Panelists also stressed the need for policymakers in Congress and across the U.S. government to support the development of new and innovative health products.” The blog summarizes panelists’ comments and concludes, “We are at a critical juncture in much of the global health R&D currently underway, and USAID will be instrumental in ensuring these technologies come to fruition” (Taylor, 10/23).
