State Department and Related Agency Funding for 2020
March 27, 2019
CCIH joined the Global AIDS Policy Partnership (GAPP) in signing on to a letter to the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee for State and Foreign Operations. The letter requests that FY 2020 funding legislation for the State Department and related agencies protect funding levels for global health and development programs and at a minimum maintain the FY 2019 enacted levels. The group also urged expansion of funding for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to $5.5 billion and requested $1.56 billion for the U.S. contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) and $350 million for the USAID HIV/AIDS program.
