Title: Research: Critical for Global Health


1
Research Critical for Global Health
  • Insert Your Name the Date of the Presentation
    Here

2
Medical research changes our lives
3
Medical Research Big domestic and global
paybacks
  • 51 decline in death rates from stroke, 1975 to
    2000
  • 70 reduction in AIDS-related deaths (U.S.),
    1995-2001
  • Researchers discovered oral rehydration therapy
    for diarrhea, Pedialyte, that has saved
    childrens lives world wide

4
New medical tools needed to fight global diseases
  • Malaria - 247 million cases a year. Needed
    better diagnostics, better drugs, better
    prevention, and a vaccine.
  • Tuberculosis - 1 in 3 worldwide have been
    exposed to TB (have latent TB). Needed better
    diagnostics, better drugs, and an effective
    vaccine.
  • HIV/AIDS - Worldwide epidemic is spreading.
    Needed better drugs and a vaccine.

5
Medical research should not neglect global
health, but has
  • Over 30 years, 1,556 new drugs brought to market
  • 179 for cardiovascular disease
  • 21 for tuberculosis and tropical diseases
  • Tuberculosis and tropical diseases affect the
    same number of people as cardiovascular disease.

6
Global health matters to us for public health
reasons
  • In 2003, SARS originated in Asia. Spread
    worldwide in a matter of weeks.
  • West Nile virus originated in Africa. Now in
    nearly every state in the U.S.
  • Extensively drug resistant tuberculosis is
    spreading globally. Has been reported in the
    United States.

7
Global health matters to us for economic reasons
  • (Here it would be helpful to add information on
    how global health affects your state, available
    at http//www.familiesusa.org/issues/global-health
    /publications/global-health-and-your-state.html)

8
Global health matters to us for diplomatic and
security reasons
  • Growing consensus that global health is linked
    to security
  • National Academy of Sciences News Release, Dec.
    15, 2008 Global Health Should Be Key Component
    of U.S. Foreign Policy
  • Report on presentation of Dr. S. Ward Casscells,
    assistant secretary of defense for health
    affairs, Jan. 2009 Global Health Key to Security
    Improvements

9
It is part of maintaining our scientific
leadership
China gunning for brain gain
The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) says that
it will pay for thousands of overseas scholars
and scientists to come and work in China over the
next five years.
10
Government has a major role in global health
research
11
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • Annual budget of 30 billion
  • Operates 27 Institutes and Centersit is
    Americas leading research institute
  • 80 percent of NIH funds go to state institutions
    and businesses as grants and research contracts
  • NIH components most focused on global health
  • National Institute for Allergy and Infectious
    Diseases (NIAID)
  • Fogarty International Center

12
The Centers for Disease Control
13
Department of Defense
  • The Department of Defense researches global
    disease threats to our troops and U.S. civilians
    abroad.
  • Several programs within DOD conduct research on
    global infectious diseases.

14
United States Agency for International
Development
  • USAID extends assistance to countries recovering
    from disaster, trying to escape poverty, and
    engaging in democratic reforms.
  • Health research is integral to USAIDs
    assistance work

15
Our investment in global health research
inadequate
  • U.S. government research spending on eight
    leading neglected infectious diseases was 376
    million in 2007

16
Strong agency funding essential to global health
research
17
Research is expensive and results arent
guaranteed
Basic research to preclinical to Phase I, II, and
III trials
18
But there are immediate paybacks
  • Immediate economic benefit to states from
    research dollars that flow to them
  • Our presence through overseas research can
    enhance goodwill
  • Having systems in place can stop disease threats
    now

19
In your advocacy, make the benefits immediate and
local
  • In your advocacy, talk about how research dollars
    that go to your state spur economic growth use
    global health examples
  • Talk about how global health matters to your
    state
  • Adding data on any local global health threats
    for example, TB cases or West Nile can be
    effective

20
In your advocacy, be aware of the audiences
special interests
  • Check Committee assignments and special interests
    of the person youre meeting with and be sure to
    focus on those
  • For example, if youre talking to someone
    interested in defense, make the security argument
    up front

21
In your advocacy, have a specific request if you
can
  • Helps to make your voice heard and to let members
    of Congress know that you think global health
    research is important.
  • Members of Congress dont expect you to know all
    the answers, but -- if you can -- it helps to
    have a specific request
  • This can be for research on a specific disease or
    funding related to a specific agency
  • Before your meeting, find out where Congress is
    in the funding (appropriations) cycle and see
    what advocacy groups are asking for. You can
    reference requests that they have made public.

22
Groups that can be sources for funding requests
  • AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition ADIS vaccine
    research funding
  • Alliance for Microbicide Development Funding for
    HIV microbicides
  • American Society for Tropical Medicine and
    Hygiene Funding for research on malaria and
    tropical diseases
  • Infectious Disease Society of America Funding
    for TB research
  • Research ! America Overall NIH advocacy
  • The CDC Coalition Overall CDC advocacy
  • Treatment Action Group TB and HIV/AIDS research
    funding

23
Polio vaccine, 1955-2005 averted 1.1 million
polio cases saved 160,000 lives economic
benefit gt 180 billion
The Americas were declared polio free in 1994
