GHTC sends letter urging Senate leaders to bolster BARDA’s authority and resources to combat naturally occurring health threats

GHTC sent a letter to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP) encouraging them, through the reauthorization of the Pandemics and All-Hazards Preparedness Act, to ensure the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) has ample resources and authority to address emerging infectious diseases (EIDs), pandemic influenza (PI), and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
