What is the Budget Tracker?

The U.S. Global Health Budget Tracker, a project of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, provides up-to-date and easy-to-access information on the U.S. global health budget, which includes funding for disease-specific (e.g. HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, etc.) and population-based (e.g. maternal and child health, family planning and reproductive health, etc.) programs provided through numerous U.S. government departments and agencies (e.g. State Department, USAID, CDC, etc.).

The Budget Tracker presents historical funding levels by program area, agency, and initiative (e.g. PEPFAR, GHI, etc.) and tracks funding levels throughout the annual appropriations process starting with the President’s Budget Request and continuing as Congressional appropriations bills are introduced and finalized.
