Kaiser Family Foundation Examines Americans’ Views On U.S. Role In Global Health

Kaiser Family Foundation: Data Note: Americans’ Views On The U.S. Role In Global Health
This new survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation “shows the public, including a plurality of Republicans, Democrats and independents, wants funding for global health maintained. Americans’ top priorities for global health funding focus on meeting basic human needs such as improving access to clean water and food, and helping children… A large majority of the public overestimates the share of the U.S. federal budget spent on foreign aid and most say the country spends too much on it, but the public is more supportive of spending specifically aimed at improving health in developing countries. Another top priority is the fight against Ebola in West Africa, a news story that has ranked among the most closely watched developments of 2014…” (DiJulio et al., 1/23).
