Blog Summarizes Analyses Examining Possible Effects of Sequestration on Global Health, Science Research

October 5, 2012

The Global Health Technologies Coalition's "Breakthroughs" blog examines "the likely devastating impact of sequestration on U.S.-funded global health, research, science, and development programs" and summarizes several recently released reports on potential budget cuts. The blog outlines the findings of an updated analysis from amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, which examines the possible human and global health impacts of budget sequestration; a new analysis from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) that says sequestration would "no doubt have significant impacts on federal funding of science, research, and innovation"; a document (.pdf) from Bread for the World that examines the potential impact of sequestration on the international affairs budget; and an updated analysis (.pdf) from Research!America looking at how sequestration could affect health research and science at several U.S. agencies (Lufkin, 10/4).
