The IDSA/HIVMA’s Center for Global Health Policy has serious concerns about the implications of congressional proposals for overhauling U.S. foreign assistance, fearing the legislation could lead to a diminished U.S. commitment to combating infectious diseases, particularly AIDS and tuberculosis.

The Global Center noted that the committee’s initial outline did not list global health as a priority and argued that health must continue to be one of the “cornerstones of U.S. foreign assistance.”
