U.S. Must Continue Steady Global Health Funding ‘To Save Lives,’ Friends Of The Global Fight President Says
Friends of the Global Fight Blog: Why every cent matters in the U.S. global health budget
Friends of the Global Fight President Chris Collins writes, “I recently had the honor of addressing the amfAR Capitol Hill Conference, ‘Making AIDS History: A Roadmap for Ending the Epidemic,’ and I talked about why every dollar counts in U.S. global health investments. … In my presentation I argued that even smaller cuts to U.S. bilateral programs for HIV, tuberculosis (TB), and malaria, as well as our investment in the Global Fund, risk taking us off track to ending these deadly epidemics. … We must continue steady funding for global health to save lives, bolster economies, and protect the world, as well as our own shores, against the resurgence of disease. This is why every dollar — every cent — matters in global health” (6/21).
