Endocrine Society Urges Expedient Funding Package

November 09, 2023

Dear Speaker Johnson, Majority Leader Schumer, and Minority Leaders Jeffries and McConnell:

"The undersigned organizations, as Friends of the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH), request that you work in a bipartisan manner to expeditiously pass fiscal year 2024 appropriations legislation and—within that legislation—include at least the Senate’s recommended funding level of $47.8 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and at least $71.4 million for the NIH ORWH base budget. The ability of NIH, ORWH, and our nation’s federal and public health entities to carry out their respective missions is contingent on passing legislation that would allow them not only to keep pace with the biomedical research and development price index (BRDPI) but also to meaningfully build upon their research, programs, and initiatives to advance the nation’s health."
