IDSA, HIVMA Members Urge Against Global Health Cuts

The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other global health programs will see funding cuts following the budget deal reached earlier this month for the remainder of the 2011 fiscal year. (See related article this issue.) Op-eds written by IDSA and HIVMA members, who encouraged members of Congress to preserve global health funding this year and beyond, were published in several newspapers prior to the budget agreement: “Global health a worthy cause,” by Jose Hagan, MD, in the Columbia (Mo.) Daily Tribune; “America's health aid saves others, helps us,” by Sandra Gonzalez Gompf, MD, FIDSA, in the St. Petersburg Times; and “Don't cut global health care,” by Ellen Chadwick, MD, FIDSA, in the Chicago Tribune.
