IDSA and HIVMA joined several other groups under the umbrella of the Coalition for Health Funding to produce a report, Faces of Austerity: How Budget Cuts Hurt America’s Health, which features stories from researchers, practitioners, and public health officials from across the country whose work has been negatively affected by recent federal funding reductions. IDSA and HIVMA contributed a story from a member that captures the real-world implications of declining support to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The report was covered in the media and utilized during an advocacy day on Capitol Hill to highlight the need to restore funding to federal health programs. The goal of the report is to help shape decisions on federal spending that will occur over the next few months. Tweet your representatives and senators #CutsHurt and the report link to keep the discussion alive.
