Congressional Malaria Caucus Expands to Include NTDs

October 28th, 2009 by Erin Hohlfelder Leave a reply »

We are excited to announce that the Congressional Malaria Caucus, co-chaired by Rep. Payne (D-NJ) and Rep. Boozman (R-AR), has formally expanded its mandate to include neglected tropical diseases.  Beginning with a briefing on Capitol Hill today, the newly-named Congressional Malaria and NTDs Caucus will continue to address the scourge of malaria but will also look at ways to promote cost-effective global health investments, particularly through linkages with NTD control.

Check back to End the Neglect later this morning,  when we’ll feature a post from Malaria No More Policy Center Director, Mark Green.  He’ll share his thoughts on the Caucus expansion and what it means for global health.  Also be sure to check out the Malaria Policy Center’s blog, Malaria Watch, where Global Network Managing Director Kari Stoever will share her feedback today.

    This does not look good. If you have issues with a guy, then it needs to be dealt with internally. Questioning your quarterback on his toughness is a bad idea. Get back on track by winning big this week.

    That game was absolutely disgusting. How do you drop that game to the Browns? Hell in december?, what a joke. At least the draft is only 5 months away.
