AIDS vaccine funding
I bet you won't read about this in the BMJ or Lancet.
From the August Nature Medicine, which points out that Europe makes a minimal contribution to efforts to find an HIV/AIDS vaccine
Worse, what money they do spend is probably not well spent: Europe continues to promote fragmented projects, researchers say, while elsewhere, the Global HIV/AIDS Vaccine Enterprise and the US National Institutes of Health (NIH)’s proposed Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology are fostering collaborations.Puts into perspective all those stories about how stingy the U.S. was with tsunami relief (I know those didn't include private contributions so were B.S. anyway)
