What We Do

The Need — and the Response

The intertwined pandemics of HIV and TB had been circling the globe for three decades when overlapping public health crises of Ebola and Zika, brought global infectious diseases to the heightened attention of U.S. policy makers and funders. At the same time, however, media coverage of infectious disease threats around the world was continuing to diminish, as major outlets cut resources for domestic and international health reporting in favor of issues that seemed closer to home. That is where Science Speaks Blog comes in.

With regular posts, IDSA’s global health blog reminds readers that infectious diseases don’t observe national boundaries, and effective, evidence-based responses protect us all. With the on-the-ground experience of IDSA members and staff, Science Speaks informs readers of both global and domestic impacts and answers to infectious diseases.
