Malaria, maternal and child health (MCH), and family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) funding increased in the FY 2017 request compared to FY16, while funding for global health security, bilateral HIV, and the U.S. contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria remained flat.
