Examining Global Health Research Funding Under FY14 Budget Request

Writing in the Global Health Technologies Coalition’s (GHTC) “Breakthroughs” blog, GHTC Policy Officer Ashley Bennett examines proposed funding for global health and research under President Obama’s FY 2014 budget request, which was released last week. She says the budget request holds “mixed results” for global health and “provide[s] specific details on funding levels at key agencies that support global health and research efforts, including” the CDC (.pdf), the FDA (.pdf), the NIH (.pdf), and USAID (.pdf). Bennett notes, “Details are still forthcoming about how global health research fared at the Department of Defense.” She concludes, “Congress must act to avoid further cuts and fund global health research programs at the robust levels that ensure availability of new technologies to the millions who need them worldwide” (4/12).
