Blogs, Organizations Express Concern Over FY15 Budget Request

The Global Health Technologies Coalition “Breakthroughs” blog discusses President Barack Obama’s FY 2015 budget request’s possible impact on global health research and development (Bennett, 3/6). In a press release, amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, warns that though the Global Fund and major domestic AIDS programs are protected in the budget proposal, PEPFAR funding remains flat and could “undermine the strong gains against HIV/AIDS that U.S. leadership has helped foster around the world” (3/5). An Oxfam America press release expresses the organization’s concern over cuts to disaster and humanitarian programs (3/5).

Additional information about global health spending proposed in the FY15 budget request is available from the Kaiser Family Foundation’s “Policy Tracker” (3/5).
