Global Health and International Affairs Support
September 27, 2023
CCIH joined many actors in the global health community to sign on a letter coordinated by the Global Health Council to strongly encourage Congress’ support for robust funding for global health; nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), and biosafety and biosecurity programs within the International Affairs account, as well as all other global health-related budgets in the final Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 appropriations. Investments in these programs save lives, transform communities, and advance health equity, and it estimated that for every $1 invested in health, there is an economic return of between $2 to $4 across developing nations. The letter was sent to US House and Senate appropriations leaders.
