IDSA’s Center for Global Health Policy has received a new grant from Capital for Good for its work to inform evidence-based responses to HIV and tuberculosis through the first quarter of 2017.
The grant, for $287,238, will support reporting from major scientific conferences, and outreach to policymakers during the upcoming transition to a new administration and Congress that will bring new leadership of federal agencies tasked with global health responses, and significant changes in the congressional leadership overseeing global health responses and funding.
It will provide resources for the development of briefing papers outlining scientific developments and impacts, engaging physician member experts in policy education, and collaborating with other global health advocates on strategy and messaging.
The IDSA Center for Global Health Policy began in 2008 with a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and has since received grants through Capital for Good that have supported congressional staff study tours of IDSA member programs in southern Africa as well as other opportunities to bring the voices of physician members to policy makers. The Global Health team of staff and member volunteers raises awareness of the need for policies and resources responding to emerging, resurgent and neglected infections, including Ebola and Zika worldwide.
