Senate Appropriations Committee approves FY14 Health & Human Services Appropriations Bill

The Senate Committee on Appropriations approved the FY 2013 Labor, Health & Human Services, Education and Related Agencies appropriations bill (S. 1284) by a vote of 16-14. A report (113-71) released by the committee provided the funding levels for global health programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the John E. Fogarty International Center. Additional funding for global health programs and research conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is not yet available.

Note: The majority of U.S. global health funding is provided through the State & Foreign Operations appropriations bill which has not yet been introduced.
