Comments to U.S. Government Leaders on Putting a Priority on NIH Funding

Published February 7, 2017

The Alliance joined with 250 other organizations in calling on U.S. government leadership to put a priority on funding for the National Institutes of Health for FY 2017 and beyond.

A letter authored by the Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research sent to President Donald J. Trump and congressional leaders called on them to “to enact without further delay a final fiscal year (FY) 2017 spending package that includes the Senate Appropriations Committee-approved $34.1 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and to ensure that NIH remains a priority in FY 2018 and beyond.”

Included with the letter was a fact sheet offering evidence on why NIH research is vital to the health and quality of life for all Americans.
