Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Reforming Health Care: Hearing Before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations, United States Senate, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session, Special Hearing

The subcommittee met at 2 p.m., in the Old Library Auditorium, Oregon Health Science University, Hon. Mark O. Hatfield presiding.

Present: Senator Hatfield.

Department of Health and Human Services

National Institution of Health

Statement of Dr. Harold Varmus, Director

Opening Remarks of Senator Mark Hatefield

Senator Hatfield. The hearing will please come to order. When the Congress returns after the Passover and Easter recess period, we will be taking up a bill to consider health care reform legislation. This legislation was proposed by my colleagues, Senators Kassebaum and Kennedy, and has strong bipartisan support and is a major step toward fixing problems with our health care system, particularly with regard to the availability and cost of insurance.

However, a vital element of health care reform is not part of the Kassebaum-Kennedy bill. This element is the focus of today's hearing, how much and how best to maximize the return on our Federal investment in medical research. I am sure that most of you know that we do have over $12 billion invested annually. That not only includes NIH, but that includes Defense, Veterans, et cetera, so we are investing a very tidy amount of money annually to support biomedical research, which to me is a central element of health care reform. What better way to lower health care costs, to reduce suffering and increase productivity than to prevent and cure disease?

The proud tradition of American leadership in the biomedical sciences, conceived over 100 years ago and embodied today in the activities of the National Institutes of Health, has been important and one of the great factors in our domestic quality of life as well in our international stature. Two key objectives drive the engine of biomedical research and the first is to expand fundamental knowledge about how living systems exist and function, commonly known as basic research.
