Issue Background

Federal Funding

Take 3 minutes to assist IDSA and HIVMA advocacy efforts by letting your Members of Congress know that federal agency and program funding levels need to be finalized in the weeks ahead, so that new cuts are not set into motion. Contact your Members of Congress today using the IDSA HIVMA Action Center.

Today’s investment in ID research; public health and prevention; and development of new drugs, vaccines and diagnostics will pay significant dividends in the future. Such investments can prevent needless deaths, dramatically reduce health care costs, and improve the quality of life for millions of Americans and others around the world.

  • National Institutes of Health – National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
