Research!America Releases Top 10 Reasons to Invest in Global Health R&D


Why do you think we should be investing in global health research and development? Research!America has just released ’€œTop 10 Reasons Why the U.S. Should Invest in Global Health R&D.’€ This evidence-based list provides compelling reasons why these investments are critical for the U.S., ranging from the humanitarian benefits to research as a powerful driver of U.S. economic activity. The list can be found on Research!America’€™s new Global Health R&D Advocacy website.

The site introduces Research!America’€™s new initiative for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), including a recently released fact sheet on NTDs in the U.S. Additional NTD resources include a global health budget section, a section on the value of the U.S. investment in global health, and a globally focused NTD sheet, which will be available soon ’€” so check back!

Please let us know what you think should be included on the Top 10 list in our comments section below ’€” we may incorporate your suggestions into our future publications!

Without continued support for health research, many of the most promising young scientists, their ideas and a myriad of potentially life-changing scientific breakthroughs will vanish into oblivion.
