New Online Resource Tracks Legislation Affecting Global Health
A new KFF online resource tracks more than 30 bills introduced in the current Congress that would affect global health policy.
The U.S. Global Health Legislation Tracker covers current legislation on an array of topics, from implementing a strategy to help end preventable maternal and child deaths to creating an action plan on climate change. There is also legislation regarding reproductive health, global health security, and LGBTI issues.
The tracker captures each bill’s title, sponsors and topic, as well as a short description of its global health provisions and current status in Congress. It links to the full text of each bill and will be updated regularly as new bills are introduced or existing bills move through the legislative process.
The tracker complements our U.S. Global Health Budget Tracker, which provides regularly updated information on U.S. government funding for global health.
