NIH funding doubled from $3.4 billion to $7.1 billion. A decade later, it doubled again to $15.6 billion. In the wake of September 2001, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) saw its direct budget increase over 300% without accounting for DARPA funds of as much as $1.7 billion annually from 2005 forward. In 2020, NIH’s budget was over $41 billion. What has become of the $763 billion of taxpayer funds allocated to making America healthier since inventors have been commercially incentivized?
