Kaiser Family Foundation Releases Budget Analysis Of FY14 Omnibus Appropriations Act

The Kaiser Family Foundation on Friday released a new budget analysis that reviews the FY 2014 omnibus appropriations act signed on January 17, 2014. Although global health funding represents less than one percent of the overall federal budget, the omnibus “provides the highest historical level (approximately $9.1 billion) of U.S. funding for global health programs,” according to an email alert from the foundation. “Looking more broadly at funding trends over time, focusing on the Global Health Programs (GHP) account, increased funding for global health has been relatively modest in recent years (rising three percent between 2012 and 2014, for example), after the substantial increases of the prior decade. This was similar to the rate of growth in federal funding for other non-defense discretionary spending over the same, recent period (two percent)…” (Kates/Wexler, 1/31).
