Press Release | The COVID-19 Outbreak: Slashing Global Health Funding & Muzzling Scientists Threatens US Security

Washington, DC- The COVID-19 outbreak, one of many deadly disease outbreaks that have occurred and will occur again, clearly shows the importance of funding institutions like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, Health and Human Services, United States Agency for International Development, and the Environmental Protection Agency.These institutions are vital to protecting the health, security, and economic interests of all Americans. Cutting their funding as President Trump has proposed in his FY 2021 budget will weaken the nation’s ability respond to lethal outbreaks and is a clear and present danger to the security of all Americans.
