The IDSA Global Health Science Speaks blog is covering changes in leadership and policy impacting global infectious disease research and responses with reporting on the 115th Congress and the 2017 Transition, including:
- The Trump Administration's decision to keep United States Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Deborah Birx and National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins in their posts at least until the appointment of new Cabinet officials;
- The return and expansion of President Reagan's 1984 "Mexico City" policy prohibiting international and local nonprofits receiving U.S. funding from providing counseling, referrals or services to terminate pregnancies;
- Introductions to new members of the Senate Foreign Relations, Appropriations, and HELP Committees.
The blog also takes a look at President Obama's global disease response legacy.
