Key House Republican Members for Global Health Funding

January 21, 2011

In two posts (here and here), the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog profiles House Republicans influential over funding for global health programs. "The new Congress brings about a number of important changes to the U.S. House of Representatives' Appropriations Subcommittee, which determines most of the funding levels for U.S. global health programs through the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee," according to the blog, which notes that the subcommittee "plays a major role in determining annual funding levels" for the PEPFAR, the Global Fund and global TB programs. "It can also use the appropriations process to effect policy changes by conditioning the use of funds," the blog states (January 2011).
