Autoimmune Association Leads Sign-On Letter, Supported by 24 Patient Groups

March 2022- The Autoimmune Association led a sign-on letter supported by 24 organizations calling on Congress to include an increase in its supplemental Covid-19 funding for treatment and prevention through the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) in the FY 2022 omnibus appropriations package.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and BARDA, several new investigational COVID-19 therapies are completing clinical studies and could be authorized by FDA in the coming weeks and months. We cannot risk delays in the manufacturing and distribution of these new drugs at a time when patients and our health care system need them the most, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic has claimed the lives of nearly 960,000 Americans. Click here to read the full letter.
