[Correspondence] Closing the NIH Fogarty Center threatens US and global health

The budget set out by the Trump administration for the 2018 fiscal year proposes cutting about US$6 billion from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Specifically, this budget intends to eliminate the John E Fogarty International Center, which currently receives 0·2% of the NIH’s 2017 budget of $33·1 billion. Despite its modest size, the Fogarty Center has become a crucial contributor to health research worldwide over the past 50 years by funding the training of over 6000 scientists in developing countries, including many of the world’s leading scientists in infectious disease research.
