Kaiser Family Foundation Budget Summary Analyzes Global Health Aspects Of FY16 Omnibus Released By Congress

Kaiser Family Foundation: Congress Releases FY16 Omnibus
This budget summary highlights global health-related funding contained in the FY 2016 Omnibus bill released by Congress on Wednesday. The bill “…includes funding for U.S. global health programs at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Department of State, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Total known funding for U.S. global health programs in the FY 2016 Omnibus is $9.2 billion, which is approximately $58 million (<1%) higher than the FY 2015 enacted level, and $312 million (4%) above the President’s FY 2016 Budget Request. … It is important to note that the Global Gag Rule (Mexico City Policy), which was included in the House version of the State and Foreign Operations (SFOPs) appropriation bill, was not included in the FY 2016 Omnibus.” The analysis includes tables that “compare U.S. global health funding in the FY 2016 Omnibus to the FY 2015 enacted levels and the President’s FY 2016 Budget Request” (12/16).
