New amfAR Issue Briefs Examine U.S. Investment in Global Health, Foreign Aid

March 15, 2013

amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, has published two new issue briefs examining U.S. investment in global health. The first (.pdf), titled "Saving Lives, Saving Money: The Case for Strengthened U.S. Investments in Global Health Programs," provides data on spending and program outcomes, concluding, "Although cuts in global health assistance would make only a miniscule contribution to deficit reduction, these cuts would have severe consequences for people living in the world's poorest countries." The second (.pdf), titled "The Evidence on U.S. Investments in Foreign Aid," says the small percentage the U.S. spends on foreign assistance "reduces poverty and promotes economic growth and international development"; "promotes America's security"; "is in America's economic interest"; "enhances U.S. diplomacy"; and receives bipartisan support. In addition, the issue brief notes the "effectiveness and efficiency of U.S. foreign aid is increasing" (March 2013).
