IANAS is the Inter-American Network of Academies of Science. Networks are powerful instruments for sharing and rapidly disseminating information, best practices and novel ideas through a larger community. By virtue of their credibility and independence from government, academies have certain inherent advantages in addressing issues related to science, technology and health (STH), and in advancing high quality science education at the national level. Our Mission: is to strengthen science communities in the hemisphere and to provide an independent source of policy advice to governments on key scientific, technological and health challenges. Our Vision: IANAS views strong science academies and vibrant science and technology communities as essential to sustainable development in the Americas

 U.S. Investment in Health Research
"Research!America has been tracking and analyzing the various streams of funding that make up the total U.S. investment in health research for a decade, and trends tell us we are headed in the wrong direction...Overall, U.S. investment in health research is essentially stagnant when compared to measures of inflation. In contrast, countries around the world are continuing to rapidly scale up investments in R&D. Renewed, robust U.S. investment in research is needed to foster the new treatments and cures that save lives and improve health while driving economic growth."
