New Interactive Tool Tracks the U.S. Global Health Budget in Real Time
The Kaiser Family Foundation has launched a new interactive tool designed to provide the latest data on the U.S. government’s global health budget in an easy-to-access form.
The U.S. Global Health Budget Tracker lets users follow the budget from the President’s budget request through the appropriations process in Congress, as well as see trends over time. Data are provided for global health program areas (e.g., HIV, TB, family planning/reproductive health) by Agency (e.g., USAID, CDC) and by major initiative (e.g., PEPFAR). The tracker contains final budget data dating back to fiscal year 2006.
On Thursday, September 11 at 1 p.m. ET, the Foundation hosted an interactive web briefing with Vice President and Director of Global Health and HIV Policy Jennifer Kates; Director of the U.S. Global Health Budget Project Adam Wexler; and Global Health Policy Analyst Allison Valentine, discussed the tracker and demonstrate how to use it to analyze funding data.
