Coming soon.

Our friend and colleague, Claire Neal, executive director of the Triangle Global Health Consortium, penned an op-ed that makes a great case for maintaining or increasing U.S. global health funding. She argues that federal global health funding cuts would not only affect our safety and the health of people in low-resource settings around the world, but would also have a significant negative impact on the NC global health community. Definitely worth a read!
