Analysis Examines Potential Global Health Impact of Obama Administration's FY13 Budget Request

April 6, 2012

A new analysis (.doc) from amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, "estimates potential human impacts of funding changes [in global health programs] proposed in the President's fiscal year 2013 budget request when compared to current operating budget levels (fiscal year 2012)." President Obama's FY 2013 budget request includes a decrease in funding for PEPFAR and an increase in funding for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, according to the analysis, which concludes, "Taken together, proposed changes in funding for the Global Fund and PEPFAR could lead to significant reductions in lifesaving AIDS treatment delivery, services to orphans and other vulnerable children, prevention of vertical HIV transmission (from mother-to-child) services, and HIV testing services that could otherwise have been delivered with flat funding for PEPFAR" (April 2012).
