GHTC Blog Examines FY 2014 State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Bill

Writing in the Global Health Technologies Coalition’s (GHTC) “Breakthroughs” blog, GHTC Policy Officer Ashley Bennett summarizes a bill that was approved on Friday by the House Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs, which includes funding for “key global health research activities.” She writes, “Overall, global health programs fared relatively well under the bill, compared with other [State and Foreign Operations] accounts,” and notes, “Congress should move quickly to protect these programs in upcoming Committee discussions and final budget negotiations later this year” (7/22).

Additional details regarding the subcommittee’s appropriations bill proposal are available on the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Policy Tracker (7/19).
