21st Century Cures Legislation Bolsters Needed Research: RHA Disappointed Prevention Dollars Raided to Fund Legislation

Below is the statement of Joel Africk, president and Chief Executive Officer of Respiratory Health Association on the 21st Century Cures Legislation.

On December 6, 2016, the U.S. Senate, with overwhelming bipartisan support passed the 21st Century Cures Act. This legislation provides billions in funding for research into cancer and other rare diseases, streamlines the drug and medical device approval process, provides more support for the nation?s mental health programs, and helps combat the opioid epidemic.
