Swedish Research Cuts Bad for Third World

Swedish scientists have voiced disappointment with the budget cuts imposed on the country’s International Development Cooperation Agency SIDA. Microbiologist Gunilla Källenius of Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute told Swedish Radio that the government’s decision to curtail research funds by ten million dollars next year would mean serious setbacks in the search for new vaccines against tuberculosis or malaria. This would result in severe disadvantages for poor countries of the third world where these diseases still posed a threat to people’s health, Källenius said.
