The Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC) has released its fourth annual policy report, documenting US leadership in driving global health research and development to save lives around the world.
Renewing US Leadership: Policies to Advance Global Health Research highlights recent scientific and policy achievements that have spurred the development of important health innovations such as vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics.
It also offers recommendations for how US policymakers can continue making critical investments to produce the next generation of global health tools—proposals that are especially timely given the looming US budget cuts that threaten decades of work to develop tools against major killers, including AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
The report makes recommendations in two areas: advancing global health research and maximizing US investments in research and development.
Advancing global health research:
Maximizing US investments:
The GHTC is housed at PATH and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The coalition includes nearly 40 organizations advocating for research and development of tools to prevent, diagnose, and treat global diseases so health solutions are available when populations need them.
