  • IDSA Statement on the Confirmation of Tom Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services

    02/10/2017

    Statement from IDSA President William Powderly, MD, FIDSA: 

    The Infectious Diseases Society of America is committed to working with Secretary Price, confirmed today by the U.S. Senate as the new Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, to improve patient care, strengthen public health, and promote biomedical research and innovation. We are hopeful that, as a physician, Secretary Price will bring to his new role an interest in collaborating with the medical community and an appreciation for evidence-based policies. IDSA can be counted on to support Secretary Price on efforts to strengthen and support the ID and HIV physician workforce; combat antimicrobial resistance; invest in public health infrastructure and emergency preparedness; and incentivize the research and development of urgently needed new antimicrobial drugs, diagnostics and vaccines. We were pleased that Senators of both parties raised these issues during confirmation hearings. We look forward to the work ahead.
