New tool from Global Health Technologies Coalition allows for state-by-state analysis and quantifies economic and health benefits of US investments in global health Research and Development

The Global Health Technologies Coalition released a new tool this week which quantifies how federal funding to create cures and treatments to combat deadly global diseases is also generating considerable economic benefits for individual states.  The analysis also underscores the danger of ignoring neglected diseases, by enumerating how these diseases, assumed by many to only afflict the world’s poorest, also affect individuals across every state. Additionally, the analysis documents how local universities and research institutions are benefiting from these investments and identifies private-sector companies within each state that are working to advance new innovations to combat long-standing and emerging global health challenges.
