New Report Examines DoD's Infectious Disease Efforts Related to Global Health
October 22, 2013 - The Kaiser Family Foundation today released a new report providing providing an overview of the Department of Defense's infectious disease efforts related to global health.

It identifies the various department funding streams for infectious disease efforts and spotlights the department's work to address two of global health's key infectious disease challenges, HIV/AIDS and malaria.
This report builds on The U.S. Department of Defense and Global Health, a Kaiser Family Foundation report released last fall that provided the first comprehensive look at the department's role in global health. The U.S. Department of Defense and Global Health: Infectious Disease Efforts is available on the Kaiser Family Foundation website .
