Kaiser Family Foundation Releases Analysis Of FY16 Global Health Budget Request

Kaiser Family Foundation: The U.S. Global Health Budget: Analysis of the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Request
A new Kaiser Family Foundation analysis examines President Barack Obama’s fiscal year 2016 budget request, which “proposed $9.9 billion in specified funding for global health programs. If enacted by Congress, this would represent a decline from levels set in the FY15 Omnibus Appropriations bill (not including emergency funding for Ebola that was provided in the FY15 Omnibus bill). In each of the past three fiscal years (FY13-FY15), however, Congress has approved higher funding levels for global health than those proposed in the President’s budget request…” (Wexler/Valentine, 3/11).
