OPINION: Bipartisan Consensus On Medical Research

“Good health makes good politics,” Michael Castle, a former Republican Congressman from Delaware, and Kaitlin Christenson, director of the Global Health Technologies Coalition, write in a Roll Call opinion piece that makes a case for widespread support of medical research that aims to improve global health.

“In a time when bipartisanship may seem a relic from days past, there’s an enormous opportunity for wise heads on both sides of the aisle to put aside political differences on this particular issue. Let’s fight to keep these strange bedfellows together for global health. They may fight on just about everything else, but on this topic, there’s too much to like,” they conclude (5/25).
