We urge the UK government to reconsider the decision to significantly reduce the Official Development Assistance (ODA) funds for global health research and development. The decision to suspend the commitment to invest 0.7 per cent of GNI on ODA must be subject to full Parliamentary scrutiny.
The cuts will be highly damaging to parasitology research across the globe and will severely impact on the many communities who would benefit from this research.
