Blogs Highlight Global Health Budget Requests In Senate, House Appropriations Bills

In the Center for Global Development’s (CGD) “Global Health Policy” blog, Jenny Ottenhoff, policy outreach associate at CGD, examines the FY 2014 requests for global health in the proposed Senate and House State and Foreign Operations appropriations bills. “Both bills won approval by their respective committees,” she notes, adding, “But the $10 billion chasm between the House and the Senate, paired with a minefield of divisive policy issues, suggest that the bills likely won’t be reconciled. Instead, they will probably be rolled into a continuing resolution (CR).” Ottenhoff notes the Kaiser Family Foundation’s “Policy Tracker” contains additional information on the budget proposals (7/30). In the Global Health Technologies Coalition’s (GHTC) “Breakthroughs” blog, GHTC Policy Officer Ashley Bennett “provide[s] highlights from recent congressional budget activity that will determine funding levels for State and Foreign Operations, including global health and R&D programs at the State Department and [USAID]” (7/30).
