Blogs Highlight Congressional Testimony of USAID, CDC, MCC Heads

May 2, 2013

The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog highlights USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah's recent testimony discussing U.S. foreign assistance priorities in the FY 2014 federal budget before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. The blog focuses on discussions between Shah and members of Congress surrounding funding for tuberculosis (TB) programs, PEPFAR, and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. "Science Speaks" also highlights testimony by CDC Director Thomas Frieden, who testified last week "in front of the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Human Rights, and International Organizations at a hearing on meeting the challenges of drug-resistant diseases in developing countries" (Aziz, 5/1). The U.S. Global Leadership Coalition's blog also describes Shah's testimony on the Hill, as well as testimony from Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) CEO Daniel Yohannes (Rubin, 5/1).
